Kids who play music often feel they will be limited to certain instruments after getting braces. Obviously, young musicians who play string instruments, piano, or percussion will not suffer any negative effects from braces. On the other hand, musicians who favor certain brass or woodwind instruments might find that their ability to play is negatively impacted by braces. Using wind instruments while wearing braces can be uncomfortable and will require adjustments to playing style.
