Kissing With Braces
Kissing with braces really isn't that hard.
When you first get your braces on it is a different feeling having a mouth full of metal. Luckily many kids wear braces so you are not going to get made fun of but one question that does come up a lot is 'how hard is it to kiss with braces'. The answer to that is - it really is not hard at all.
Here are a few tips to help you on your way.
It might be a surprise to hear that you may actually get more dates if you have braces than if you don't. If another person has braces who are they going to want to go out with? Someone who understands their hang-ups or someone who doesn’t? If having braces gets you more dates then you are going to have more chances to practice your kissing as well.
One tip is to think of your braces as though you have tongue jewelry or a tongue ring. They can be something quite trendy these days. If you feel confident in your braces your date will pick up on your confidence and want to kiss you even more.
You may wonder if it hurts to kiss with braces. This is a good question. Braces today are smoother than they used to be and they are also smaller so you should not get stuck in each others teeth and it should not hurt to kiss.
Wearing braces takes a little time to get used to. If your teeth or gums are sore you may not feel like kissing, but just remember that this will ease and focus on how nice your teeth will look when you take them off.
The key to braces and kissing is no different than kissing without them. If you are gentle and take it slow you will get more enjoyment. If you find you are both getting hot and heavy then you have to remember to stay relaxed so neither of you gets cut.
If for some reason you do get cut or get your braces stuck together, again, RELAX. You can always get them unstuck by gently pulling away. Mind you, the way braces are designed these days the odds of this happening are very low anyway.
One last tip, if you have a good friend who has braces and has kissed before ask for their advice. There is no better advice than from someone who has been there and done it and I'm sure they would be more than happy to offer any pointers both good and bad for kissing with braces.
Kissing with braces just takes a little practice and persistence and it really is not that hard once you get used to it.
