Cut-out.pngYes, you can absolutely fit your SISU with braces. In fact, if you are using the dentist prescribed guard now, you will appreciate the difference. But before you run for the bowl of hot water, we want to take you through the steps of fitting the guard with braces. There is a bit of a learning curve, so please make sure to read through the rules below to help you with your fitting:

USE THE RIGHT SIZE

All athletes ages 7 and up must use the adult size SISU, the SISU Aero Guard, to fit with braces. SISU Aero Guard can be purchased here: http://www.sisuguard.com/aero-guard/

YOU MUST USE A BARRIER BETWEEN THE BRACKETS AND THE GUARD

In this state, the mouth guard can bond with the dental brackets or any other polymer in your mouth. To prevent it, you should use a wax or foil barrier between the guard and the brackets. The good news is that you should only use the barrier during the fitting process. Once fitted, you can wear the guard right over the braces during games or practices.

YOU SHOULD WORK WITH YOUR DENTAL PROFESSIONAL

Braces are an investment in time and money, so you want to do it right. During critical times when your teeth are undergoing rigorous adjustments, your orthodontist may recommend an alternative solution, so not to hinder the progress of your treatment. Work with your dental professional to help you fit, and re-fit, your SISU when you come in for your adjustments.

AS YOUR TEETH SHIFT, YOU SHOULD REFIT THE GUARD

As your teeth shift during the orthodontic treatment, the mouthguard should be adjusted to fit your new shape. The guard is remoldable for up to 20 times, so you can continue using it, as your teeth shift and move. Simply bring it with you for each adjustment and it can be re-fitted right in the office with a bit of hot water (and the barrier). No impressions required!
