Are braces a problem for my young musician? Back to Main Page
Many students will need to get braces put on and/or removed during their musical career. It is not a big problem. There is a period of adjustment, though, where playing can be difficult and/or uncomfortable for a week or two, after which they will be playing as well as ever. In the unusual event that a student is having difficulty they should attend extra help.
Try not to schedule those orthodontic appointments close to concerts, NYSSMA, or other performances.
