PORTS? YES! MUSIC? YES!
No worries - wearing braces will not prevent you from participating in a contact sport or playing a musical instrument.
We will provide you with a mouthguard to protect your teeth and braces while playing sports. In case of a sports emergency, immediately check your mouth and your appliance for any damage. If you notice any loose teeth or damage to your appliance, contact us immediately. You can temporarily relieve discomfort with wax or by rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater.
With some practice, you can play your musical instruments just as well as before you had braces. Be patient, be determined, and practice a lot. We have seen many patients wearing braces proudly play in their bands and orchestras. Don't let anything get in the way of your music!
