What happens if you are BMXing and hit your face with braces? Should I quit BMXing and skateboarding while I have braces?

I rode for a year with braces. I only took a few minor bumps to the face. I fought someone with them aswell and had my fair share of licks to the face during that ordeal. Really the worst I had happen was the edges got stuck to the inside of my mouth and id have to wiggle my mouth off of them. Didn't really hurt too bad, I dont think the nerves are very sensitive inside your mouth.

I have had my braces on since I was 10 years old, I am 14 now. My orthodontist is a greedy fucker who wants as much money as he can get. Anyway, DO NOT let your braces stop you from doing what you wanna do! Some guys wear a mouthpiece, I personally don't but it probably wouldn't hurt to. I recommend just being careful when doing things like drops and stuff where you will have a bit of a hard landing and make sure you don't go bobble head. I have never it my teeth of face off of my crossbar or anything (*knocks on wood*) but it is very possible. Just watch and be careful and you will be okay! Don't let your railroad tracks control your life! Haha

Yeah, i didn't even have time to start to bail out! It was a sputnic skyline v2. It's hanging in my shed. After it got the dent and it's dropouts got a little bent i retired it. Decided to test how easy it could dent with a hammer.... really easy. The tubing is sooooo thin. I whacked my aitken s2 as hard as i could with a wrench once. Not even a scratch.

Wow, I've had a spill like that before. I was jumping a gap and my front tire hit a rail. Those stairs still have dried blood. The sad part is that is was a small stairset.

Get a mouthguard, full face, or just don't hit your face.

How often have you hit your face/teeth? Nothing will happen if you just ride.
