Engaging in sports and maintaining orthodontic treatment might seem like a challenge, but with modern innovations like Invisalign® in Pompano Beach, athletes can confidently pursue their passions while aligning their smiles. Let’s take a deeper look into the considerations of wearing Invisalign during sports when it’s suitable and the benefits it offers.
Yes, you can wear Invisalign aligners while participating in sports. Unlike traditional braces with brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are designed to be removable, allowing athletes the flexibility to continue their activities without major disruption. However, there are some considerations to take into account.
In most cases, wearing your Invisalign aligners while engaging in sports is a suitable choice, similar to wearing them throughout your daily routine. This is applicable to a variety of sports, including non-contact and low-impact activities such as jogging, cycling, tennis and gymnastics.
In certain contact sports like wrestling or American football where there’s a higher risk of facial impact, wearing a specialized mouthguard is recommended for additional protection. In these cases, you can remove your aligners during the game and replace them afterward.
