Braces Pain? Put a Jacket on Your Brackets! Great for Wrestlers, too!

At we carry several lip protectors which cover your braces, and we're really excited about this new one: Bracket Jacket. It's the first boil-and-bite braces guard that is custom-formed just for your teeth. And better yet, it allows for tooth movement, so you won't have to worry about it messing up your treatment.

It covers both the front and back of your teeth and prevents discomfort caused by sharp brackets and wires. Great for lingual braces (on the back of the teeth)! This clear guard allows teeth to move, and leaves space to wear rubber bands.

It's really easy to custom fit the guard, and full instructions are included with the product, as well as the manufacturer's 800 phone number to call for assistance or questions.

Just heat the Bracket Jacket in hot water and press each tray to the teeth with braces to fit over and around the hardware. During daily wear, just peel Bracket Jacket off and then press it on to fit back into place.

When it's formed, the Bracket Jacket becomes relatively clear, like a clear aligner. You can occasionally eat with the Bracket Jacket in place, but it is not recommended on an everyday basis. You can wear Bracket Jacket for light contact sports (such as wrestling) as a mouth guard (it covers all biting surfaces; however, it does not protect from concussion). It's a great device to wear to protect your mouth when you sleep. And yes, it will work for lingual (behind the teeth) braces, with extra patience when forming the device.

Each package includes two trays (one for the top teeth and one for the bottom teeth) and full instructions. Bracket Jacket is manufactured from FDA-approved soft EVA material, and is free of BPA, phthalates, and latex. Buy two packages and save one for later if your teeth move months from now!
