    Hi all... I will be putting on braces tomorrow and I am currently actively doing MT, I am very scared the braces will ruin my game.. seriously. Is a normal mouth piece enough to proctect my teeth during sparring? What should I do..Thanks

    One of my friends boxes and he has braces, but he wears a double mouthpeice. I guess you should change to a double if you are wearing a single. On the sparring thing I guess try not to get hit in the face so often....?

    Have your DDR make you one. Your insurance should cover it.

    Of course! I know the best thing I can do is not getting hit in the face! lol But that aint being realistic. SO a typical double mouth piece will dop the trick ?

    I remember from last year a lot of us used to go to a kids house that we knew during lunch. He had two pairs of boxing gloves so we used to I guess you could say "fight" each other. None of us really knew what we were doing and had no skill whatsoever but I remember one of the guys that was boxing he had braces and when he got punched it cut his gums up and broke his braces. He wasn't too happy about it.

    Go to your Orthodontist/Dentist, and ask him to make you a custom mouth guard.

    Shock Doctor has mouthguards for people with braces. You should check them out if you can't afford the dentist made ones.

    Doubles do suck. I have braces and wearing the double makes me drool as well.
