Brass instruments and braces

Does anyone else here play a brass instrument and how do you find wearing braces affects your embouchure? I play the trombone a little although I haven't had it out of its case for about 6 months and my embouchure was rubbish anyway partly because of my teeth. I guess once my ortho treatment is comp...

LOL well I'll tell him on Tuesday when I go for the separators. I'm not from Hants originally (came down from Essex in 2000) so I doubt we met at school :P but yup maybe we will meet at the surgery sometime :D

Yes I am Julie! I told him about finding an online forum and he asked me for the link so he could tell his other patients about it.

I know this isn't much consolation, but I don't think your teeth aren't too bad at all! :D They're nice & white!
Thanks Lucy lol that's about the one positive thing my ortho found to say when he first saw my teeth - that they were lovely and clean.

Thanks for the welcome Angel, Karen and LucyLoop :D I am having private treatment - although my teeth are wonky they don't give me any trouble. I don't think I would have been able to get treatment on the NHS. I've just got my husband to take some pics with his digital camera of my teeth as they are...

I can give some input on the catheter as I've had one after other ops. Believe me you will be glad of not having to get out of bed to pee for the first day or two. They are mildly uncomfortable and you tend to feel like you constantly want to pee but apart from that they are really not that bad. I h...

My ortho has recommended that at some point I have miniscrew implants in my upper jaw because all my upper teeth need to be moved back. Has anyone else had this done a...
