Will braces interfere with playing musical instruments?

Yes, a little, in the beginning, until you adapt. After the initial adjustment period, you will be fine. Dr. Staples recommends that for those patients that have a large overjet (protruding upper front teeth), they should try and stay away from reed instruments such as the clarinet or saxophone. The best choice for these patients is a brass instrument, the oboe, flute or maybe something in the percussion section :)
