According to the American Dental Association, your risk of injury to the mouth and teeth is two times greater if you are not wearing a mouthguard. Play safe — wear a mouthguard.
If you do wear braces, do not use a boil-and-bite mouthguard. These guards will get stuck in your braces and possibly pull your brackets off of your teeth when you remove the mouthguard.
