I have braces and play clarinet.....??!
Question: I have braces and play clarinet.....??
I have played the clarinet, and several other woodwind instruments, for about seven years...For three of those years, I had braces and they really didn't give me much of an issue, unless i had just had work done on them like the day before or something like that. Advil or Tylenol might help temporarily but (not to sound like a teacher or anything) The best way to fix this problem is to practice. Believe me i used to have the same problem and ir really doesnt have mch to do with the braces. The more you practice, the more your muscles in and around your mouth will be used to playing the instrument anf the embouchure that is necessary. I promise practicing will help you build up a tolerance and your mouth will not hurt any more. Hope this helped:)
I had quiet the same problem i was told not to play, so i did not. They explained why as well. If you have recently got them then do not. It really hurts and the pain is very bad. I guess it would be ok to take something but you are gonna have to suffer the pain or give up.....................................?
