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.
