Should i wear a mouth guard for my braces while i play soccer and are there mouth guards that are compatible for braces with elastics?
Absolutely: Better a live chicken than a dead duck. Wear orthodontic mouthguard for all contact sports (including soccer). Your orthodontist will have one for you. Do not wear the otc warm-up kind as these prevent tooth movement, therefore no braces progress. I've seen many tooth/lip/cheek injuries from soccer w no mouth guard, so ask your orthodontic specialist for help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

A simple dressing and potentially an added protective wrap or pad may help as well. In the end, seek clearance from your treating healthcare provider first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ask Donation Center: Ask the donation center staff if they have a list of precautions you should take after blood donation. If you have a significant competition, do not donate blood within 7 – 10 days of the event, as your performance will be compromised.
