BJJ should be fine, but you don't want direct impact straight on your teeth. Mouthguards for braces are available (Google) but even then...it's a risky move.
My personal opinion of course.
I completely forgot what braces actually do when I gave my opinion, wow. I think Liza is correct here, with all that tension it really isn't worth the risk.
