The mouth guards for kids can be not only for the teeth protection while doing sports, but with the orthodontic function. The special device serves to straighten the child’s teeth and fix the wrong occlusion. It can be used as independent device or as a part of retention after wearing the brace system. As the independent device an or4thodontic mouth guard can correct the slightly deformed occlusion. If the deformation is significant, it will be better to choose non-removable brace system. But after such way of correction your child will still need to carry a mouth guard for a while not to let the teeth go back to their wrong position.
