Kissing a person with braces can be a dicey affair. But with a little patience and determination – as well as trial and error – you’ll end up doing just fine.
Kissing someone with braces like a boss

Kissing is an art that has to be mastered by everyone. And this can only mean that when you throw brace into the equation, then the whole kissing game automatically becomes much more complicated. You’ll, therefore, need to kick back and learn a few tricks especially when dating a guy or girl fitted with braces. It can be tons of fun especially when both of you decide to practice together. You also need to understand that different people feel differently about having braces. Therefore, you’ll need to ask your girlfriend or boyfriend if they are ok with you learning how to kiss them with their braces on. If your approach is good, then they will accept and that’s where the fun will automatically kick off.
1. Be patient before kissing a person with braces
Being fitted with braces can be a totally new and strange experience. It is, therefore, a good idea for you to let your girlfriend or boyfriend feel comfortable first before venturing into their mouths looking for a passionate kiss. Thankfully, there are other ways of making out rather apart from kissing. Therefore, if your partner couldn’t access the Invisalign procedure that makes kissing easier, you can always take your time. And once your partner is ready to kiss you, make sure you are patient with him or her. Pull back at the first notice of discomfort and ease your way back when it’s all good.
2. Be gentle when kissing bae with braces

As earlier stated, you’ll be required to be as gentle as you possibly can when kissing around your partner’s braces. People who aren’t patient when kissing around braces often end up getting stuck, which can be an embarrassing experience altogether. Getting stuck kissing someone with braces doesn’t mean you don’t have skill. It might be a cue for you to stop rushing and be patient. Therefore, with patience as your mantra, you’ll learn how to work your lips and tongues around the braces. Remember to work together so as to make the whole exercise as enjoyable as possible.
3. Diffuse the attention from his/her braces
As earlier stated, braces can make anyone very uncomfortable especially during the first couple of days after being fitted. For that very reason, you’ll need to learn how to divert the attention from your partner’s lips while kissing. For instance, you can choose to kiss his or her neck or cheeks right before circling back to the lips. This way, they’ll really get comfortable with the kissing and forget all about the braces. If you don’t know how to do this, don’t be shy away because learning this skill will be highly rewarding. Feel free to visit YouTube and check out videos on how to kiss their face in other places. These videos will give you a much more reliable visual aide on what you’re supposed to do.
4. Angled kissing helps avoid clashing with the braces
With thorough practice, you’ll definitely find the right angle for kissing someone with braces. Again, different people fitted with braces have different specified angles which they feel most comfortable with when kissing. And while you are looking for the right angle to kiss your partner, always remember to do it as slow and as lovingly as possible. Going all in and being aggressive will only make matters worse for you since you’ll only put yourself at the risk of injury. And whenever you feel your partner is feeling even the slightest of discomfort when kissing, don’t hesitate to pull back from the lingual action right before going back to the kissing. Remember, kissing is supposed to be fun and comfortable.
5. Kiss the lips, leave tonguing for later
When you are just starting out kissing someone with braces, you’ll be at a much higher risk of getting stuck. It is, therefore, a good idea to gently kiss him or her on the lips while still finding the best angle for French kissing. You need to understand that the Invisalign procedure isn’t available for everyone. Therefore, as long as your partner is fitted with braces, you’ll have no other option but to work your way around them. Sometimes in life, we are all required to work with whatever you are handed and go about enjoying our love lives. And once you’ve learned how to successfully work your way around the braces, your partner will appreciate your new found set of skills whenever you find your lips locked.
6. Eschew circular tongue movements to avoid braces
If you are kissing a guy or girl with braces and want to venture past the lips, then you’ll need to take extra precaution because it’ll mean the braces will be on the way. Making circular movements with your tongue – which is normal when French kissing – should be avoided at all costs. This is because your tongue is likely to brush past the braces and in the process, risk getting injured. Thankfully, there are ways your tongues can touch without the usual circular motion. And that’s exactly what the two of you will need to be doing until the braces come off. As earlier stated, you can always enjoy other ways of kissing that does not involve too much lingual action to be on the safe side.
7. Try up and down lingual movements to avoid the braces
French kissing a guy or girl with braces can be tempting because French kissing happens in the heat of the moment. If this ever happens, and I suspect that it will, then I’ll advise you try something totally different. Instead of the usual the usual circular lingual motions when French kissing, try the up and down lingual movement. That way, you’ll still derive lots of pleasure from the kissing as you would when French kissing but only without the risk of injury. What I am saying is a little improvising will not kill you. If anything, it will leave the both of you open for some really interesting and fun kisses you’ve never experienced before.
Has your love interest recently had braces fixed to their teeth? Then you may be wondering if itвЂ™s still OK to kiss her. The answer is most definitely yes! Although kissing someone with braces can be daunting the first time you try, itвЂ™s perfectly safe, and wonвЂ™t make smooching her any less enjoyable! HereвЂ™s how to kiss a person with bracesвЂ¦
Wait at least 10 days before kissing with braces
If your girlfriend has just got braces, her mouth will probably feel very sensitive and sore. This means that kissing could be uncomfortable or even painful for her. Therefore, it makes sense to wait for a month before you begin experimenting. This will give her mouth time to heal.
Take it slow when kissing with braces
Fast and passionate isnвЂ™t practical when kissing with braces. This is because pressing your lips too hard against hers could leave her with cuts on the inside of her lips. This can be painful and could mean that you must wait even longer to kiss your sweetheart.
Use your tongue carefully
Braces can be sharp, particularly on their sides. This leaves you at risk of cutting your tongue on the metal, which wonвЂ™t feel nice at all! If you are going to French kiss your love interest whilst sheвЂ™s wearing braces, use your tongue carefully and donвЂ™t rush. Whilst French kissing is undeniably sexy, kissing with closed mouths can be just as enjoyable. She wonвЂ™t be wearing braces forever, so you wonвЂ™t have to wait too long for some tongue-kissing action.
Avoid braces getting stuck together
One common question amongst people who wear braces is вЂњcan braces get stuck together?вЂќ. Whilst this is a natural concern if youвЂ™re both wearing braces, youвЂ™ll be pleased to hear that itвЂ™s very unlikely to happen. If youвЂ™re still worried, it makes sense to avoid any rapid movements that could cause the braces to lock together.
DonвЂ™t make fun of her braces
If you think that making jokes about braces or calling her вЂmetal mouthвЂ™ will put her at ease, youвЂ™re very wrong. She is likely to feel very sensitive about her braces initially and she may feel very self-conscious. ItвЂ™s your job to build her confidence and make her feel better about herself, not worse. Unless you want her to put a stop to kissing altogether, cut out the jokes.
How to kiss a girl with braces
Kissing can be daunting enough, particularly if you havenвЂ™t been with your boyfriend or girlfriend for very long, but braces can make things even more complicated. However, you really donвЂ™t need to worry about kissing with braces. As long as you take things slowly and you do your best to keep your tongue away from the metal, you shouldnвЂ™t run into any problems. Hopefully, this article has let you how to kiss with braces so that the experience is as fun and pleasurable for you both.
Welcome to Friday Focus! I’m Dr. “O” and today I’m going to be answering a question that we are often asked (or, more accurately, a question many people have but are too embarrassed to ask): “How should you kiss with Braces?” Basically, the answer is: “The same way you always have! With a couple of minor considerations…”
With braces, it’s best to focus on being gentle. If your kiss is too fast or hard, you can end up hurting yourself and/or your partner, potentially causing an ulcer. Take your time and start slow (it’s more romantic anyway) until you get comfortable with your braces. I’ve been married for 10 years and have had braces for the last 2 years. I’m happy to report that I haven’t had any problems kissing with braces so you shouldn’t, either.
You’ll also be happy to know that the story you’ve probably heard about two people with braces getting stuck together during a kiss is a myth. In actuality, the wires and brackets used in today’s braces are so small that it’s nearly impossible for them to get locked together.
Brush Your Teeth
Always be sure to keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh before kissing your partner, making sure there’s no food stuck in them. This rule should actually apply to everyone, with or without braces. Keeping your teeth clean and minty fresh breath will always make kissing more enjoyable. Your partner will love you for it.
Take a Breath and Relax
Most importantly, give yourself a break and relax. If you keep worrying about your braces, how are you supposed to enjoy that kiss? Just follow the recommendations listed here and you’ll soon be forgetting all about those braces during your kisses!

French kissing with braces?? Do braces affect French kissing?
If kissing wasn’t awkward enough, it can be even more intimidating when you’re trying to do so with the addition of tongues and braces. Because French kissing involves the tongue in addition to the lips, it’s possible for your braces to cut the soft tissue in the mouth. Rest assured, Reader, that having braces doesn’t mean an end to kissing — bracket technology has allowed for smaller and smoother brackets that are less likely to get caught, whether it be on a sweater, another bracket, or soft tissue. Read on for some tips on how to safely smooch with braces.
Kissing adds another level of intimacy to relationships. French kissing, which is really just the introduction of the tongue, can be a beautiful, passionate display of your feelings. There’s no right or wrong way to French kiss because everyone has their own personal style. Of course, how much or how little tongue you want to taste, feel, probe, suck, and meet is completely up to you.
This demonstration of affection is sometimes complicated by braces. Although not everyone will notice your braces right away, a kissing partner will see them closer than most. To make moves in a less accident-prone way, try going slowly and softening the kiss, perhaps even using just the lips themselves rather than the entire mouth. It’s also good to not put too much pressure on the lips, as they might get smashed up against the brackets. If you try these tips and they aren’t quite satisfying, consider using wax on the bumpier parts of your braces to minimize the chance of the brackets causing any cuts.
When you like someone, it might feel awkward to bring up topics such as this for fear of offending or embarrassing your partner or feeling embarrassed yourself. However, if you’ve gotten to the kissing stage, it’s likely that you feel comfortable with this person. You might try to frame the conversation as an opportunity to strengthen your relationship or as a way to build your assertiveness and better communicate your needs to your partner. Either way, taking this first step could make a world of difference for you and your kissing future. It’s also worth noting that learning and honing your kissing style takes lots of practice, so feel free to try different techniques and styles, as long as your partner is also a willing participant!
If you find that you’re getting really torn-up inside and out about how to handle the kissing-with braces dilemma, remember that you won’t be wearing braces for the rest of your life. Plus, many braces-wearing folks have been able to have happy and successful kissing relations.

A common question we get from both teens and adults who are getting braces is: can you kiss while wearing braces? You may have heard stories of people getting their braces stuck together while kissing. Although these stories may make you apprehensive when it comes to kissing, these instances are not very common.
With the advances in modern braces, kissing with braces on is not something that you should be worried about. The smaller, smoother parts are less likely to get snagged on things, like another set of braces or your girlfriend or boyfriend’s lip.
If it’s your first kiss or if you’ve had issues in the past kissing with braces on, follow these helpful tips to make your experience worry-free:
Keep your mouth closed
If this is your first time kissing the person, be sure to keep your mouth closed until you both get used to each other and learn what works with your braces and what doesn’t.
Take your time
If both parties are wearing braces or if it is your first time kissing with braces on, it is important to go slow. Even though it’s unlikely your braces will snag, you could snag your partner’s tongue, or you might bump their lips with the wires.
Watch your lip pressure
Pressing hard on your boyfriend or girlfriend’s lips when going in for a kiss may not hurt them, but it will push the wires and brackets against your lips which can cause pain and discomfort.
Use dental wax
If kissing has been difficult in the past, you can try using wax on the bumpier parts of your braces. You can also put wax on your front top teeth if your partner experiences discomfort.
Battle bad breath
When it comes to kissing, your primary concern should be your breath. Since there are more places for food to get stuck if you’re wearing braces, you could end up with bad breath. To keep bad breath at bay, you can take disposable toothbrushes and floss with you on your dates, so you can brush and floss after eating so your breath is fresh for that kiss.

yeah i want to insert my tongues and explore her cavities
just dont add the tounge
Everyone always makes jokes about getting your lips stuck or your tongue stuck in them, but the chance is really low. I dated a girl with braces for about 7 months never once got either of them stuck in her braces. Don’t worry about it and have fun, last thing you should have to worry about before you kiss is oh crap my tongue are going to get stuck and back away.
Gently but rough.
The brace cannot harm you,even if you touch her teeth.It would harm her,wouldn’t it?
You should have plenty of saliva to deal with,that is what girls with braces produce on a large scale.
Go ahead,choke her with your enthusiasm.Her cavities are waiting for your deployment.
first of all u have more then one tongue thats dope.
and second u can explore her cavities the same way u kiss or explore grls wit no braces they are all the same..
but if u have braces then yall fina have issuses
must be a pretty girl worth kissing then.
well, you have to put your tongue on a leash, french kissing is a definite no-no, unless you want your tongue redesigned.
other than that, you kiss her the same as everybody. braces are no big deal, you kiss the lips anyway and not the teeth..

How to Kiss with Braces
star of Lolita
Lots of young people worry about wearing braces. They think it will make them less kissable. But, guess what? It usually won’t!
In fact, here’s some good news for you—braces are actually becoming more in vogue as tongue rings are becoming more popular. Yes, having braces can actually attract people to you!
Look what happened in the film Lolita. Dominique Swain’s braces actually worked to attract the hero to her!
Many guys have a secret desire to kiss girls who wear braces. And you can take advantage of this!
The above is just a sample of the kissing advice you can get from William Cane’s books. No one knows kissing like William Cane.
Here’s a final tip for you if you wear braces. Don’t think of them as braces. Instead, think of them as if they were a tongue ring or jewelry. By thinking of them differently, you’ll subconsciously attract more guys to you!
Can I get stuck if I kiss someone else with braces? Dentists have reported that this is unlikely. If it does happen, you can get unstuck by turning your head. When kissing someone who doesn’t wear braces, allow him to run his tongue over your braces and don’t be self-conscious. In many ways they’re better than a tongue ring. They’re safe, they’re fun for guys to kiss, and they’ll make you look good. In fact, some girls get braces even though they don’t need them, just so they can look cute. Even guys with braces report that many girls are more interested in kissing them after they get braces.
If you’re new to wearing braces, you’ll have to make a lot of little adjustments to your lifestyle. But one thing you won’t have to give up is romance. Many people with braces worry that they won’t be able to kiss someone else while until the braces are removed. Others worry that it will be an unpleasant experience, either for them or their partner.
Never fear. Kissing with braces is not only possible, it can be just as enjoyable for both of you as it is without them.
First, take it slow. It takes time to get used to new braces. You’ll have to learn how to eat, brush your teeth. You may even need time to adjust to talking with your braces. Wait until you feel comfortable with your braces before trying for anything adventurous, like a kiss. We recommend waiting at least two weeks before attempting any kissing.
When you do kiss, take it slow. Being gentle is important, both for the safety of your braces and your partner. You may want to start with closed-lipped kisses. Be careful. You don’t want to cut or catch your partner, and you don’t want to bump your teeth. Make sure that you and your partner keep your tongues away from your braces. Like lips, the tongue can be cut or caught by your dental appliance, and that will definitely ruin the moment.
Dental wax can make your braces more comfortable, and can make kissing more enjoyable. In fact, your partner may not even notice your braces if you use dental wax properly. The rough spots that might snag or cut your partner can be covered, protecting them and making the kiss more enjoyable.
Last, we recommend you keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh. This doesn’t just apply to people wearing braces, and it certainly doesn’t apply only to people who are kissing others. Wearing braces can make it more difficult to maintain good oral health, so make sure you put in the time and effort to stay healthy and make your mouth inviting to others.
Wearing braces does not make you unattractive, and certainly does not restrict you from showing affection with a classic romantic kiss. Remember to relax. Your partner loves you, and your braces don’t change that. It just takes a bit of time and practice to become as good at kissing with braces as you would be without them.
Thinking about getting Invisalign braces, you’re going to have a lot of questions for your orthodontist. One of those questions is likely to be can you kiss with Invisalign braces ? Since most people are nervous when they’re dating a new boyfriend or girlfriend without braces, it’s understandable that you’re going to be worried about kissing with braces on your teeth!
But, relax — kissing with Invisalign braces is perfectly fine. One of the big advantages of wearing Invisalign braces is that they’re much more discreet than wearing traditional metal braces. And, you don’t have to worry about lips and tongues getting caught on all those metal attachments.
When you first start wearing your aligners and are still getting used to them, you may feel self-conscious, especially if you’re dating someone new. Therefore, you may be tempted to take your aligners out when you go on a date. Although this may seem like a good option at the time, you really should only be removing your trays for eating, brushing, and flossing. The longer you keep them out, the longer your treatment time. And, if your Invisalign braces use buttons, they can be sharp which could be a bit of an unpleasant surprise for your unsuspecting partner!
What about if you’re getting married ? Even though the trays need to be worn 20 to 22 hours a day, they won’t be an interference. The great thing about Invisalign is you can take the aligners out for important occasions. So on the most important day of your life, feel free to relax and enjoy it!
They might not even know you’re wearing them
Most people never experience any issues when kissing with Invisalign braces in because Invisalign aligners are smooth and are designed to fit tightly to your teeth. They don’t move , so they won’t dislodge or affect your kissing.
And, because they’re clear, you shouldn’t be afraid of kissing because there’s a pretty good chance your partner won’t even notice your aligners. Besides, if you’re kissing your significant other, they’re already aware of the fact that you’re wearing Invisalign braces. However, if you’re dating someone new, it may be a good idea to be upfront about wearing aligners so that you can relax and enjoy the rest of your time together.
Try taking things slow at first; this will help you get used to the sensation of kissing while wearing your aligners.
Once you’re used to wearing Invisalign braces , stop worrying about kissing your partner, relax, and enjoy your time together.
Your perfect smile

It’s one of the oldest anxieties related to braces – what happens to romance once all that glinting metal makes its way onto your teeth? Kissing with braces actually doesn’t have to be uncomfortable, awkward or painful. You shouldn’t have to lock yourself away for the two years that it will take for your teeth move to their desired position.
The biggest advice braces wearers would give for persons who are uncomfortable kissing with their braces, is to change the way you think of them. In other words, stop thinking of your braces as train tracks. Instead, look at them as fashion accessories lust like nose rings, or even tongue piercings. You would never think a pierced tongue was nerdy or uncool, so there’s no reason to believe that about braces either. Much of romance is how you feel about yourself, and you won’t feel so great if you think of yourself as “metal mouth.” The bottom-line is that you shouldn’t get your braces get in the way of experiencing a first kiss.
If you’ve just been fitted with braces, you might want to wait till your soreness and any discomfort is gone before you think of kissing. The initial days after braces have been fitted can have you suffering from dull pain, cuts and sores, and a deep aching throb in your jaw. None of this bodes well for romance! Give your mouth time to relax and get used to the braces.
When you do get to that special moment, remember to keep your mouth closed as you approach for the kiss. You risk getting your partner’s teeth crashing into the braces, or feeling the cold of the metal. Either way, it’s not a memorable experience.
Be gentle. Remember there are some things you can’t do when you have braces, and, although your orthodontist won’t tell you this, rough kissing is probably one of them! Aggressive kissing could actually cause you to damage your braces, or even worse, cut your lips or mouth on the metal.
French kissing when you have braces may not be hard on you, but it may be painful for your partner. Although modern braces are much smoother than they used to be, your partner can still have the tongue cut by the metal. So, avoid the aggressive kissing till after the braces come off, or at least till the two of you are comfortable enough with your braces. Ounce you’re used to the braces, you can increase the tempo.
Braces used to be a sure fire romance-killer. Not anymore. These days, they are available in multi-hued colors, as well as invisible styles, so they don’t seem as unattractive as before. Therefore, there’s no reason why they should play passion pooper.
Getting braces as an adult is very common. The Seton Hill University Center for Orthodontics estimates that 20 to 25 percent of orthodontics patients are adults. The procedure for adult braces before and after is similar to that of children, but if you’re new to it, here’s what you can expect when your braces finally come off.
According to Your Dentistry Guide, your orthodontist checks and tracks the position of your teeth with each visit, and will decide when your treatment is complete. Having braces removed is typically pain-free. You don’t need to prep for the appointment in any special way. In fact, you’ll probably love the reduction in pressure once the braces have been removed.
Retainers and Appliances
Your immediate impulse might be to take a photo so you can have that classic adult braces before and after shot, but you aren’t done just yet. Don’t forget to wear your retainer. Orthodontists usually fit you for a retainer to keep your teeth from moving after the braces come off. According to the Mayo Clinic, they can either be removable, or fixed in an unseen position in your mouth.
Each retainer is custom to the wearer, so it should fit pretty comfortably within your mouth. Caring for them is easy as well; simply brush them regularly with fluoride toothpaste as a natural part of your oral care routine.
Rinsing with a fluoride solution can help prevent cavities by helping to fortify tooth enamel and strengthening teeth. Rinses such as Colgate® Phos-Flur® are specially formulated with sodium fluoride, which help clean and strengthen the parts of your mouth in which braces may have trapped food and bacteria. Just add it to your regular oral care routine and rinse twice daily.
It’s only natural that you’d want white teeth to go with your newly straight smile. You can choose from two whitening processes: in office and at home. If you choose in-office whitening, you’ll need to make an appointment with your dentist. In this whitening procedure, teeth are covered with a peroxide-based gel, which is placed on the surfaces of the teeth. The gum tissue is covered with a protective gel to protect it from the bleaching gel. A light is placed on the teeth which accelerates its whitening effect which includes three – 15 minute sessions that are conducted in just one dental visit.
If you prefer to whiten at home, choose a toothpaste that contains hydrogen peroxide, which can remove stains and lighten the color of your teeth. You can use a whitening toothpaste such as Colgate® Optic White® ; if used regularly, it will help give you a brighter smile.
Getting your braces off is definitely the most exciting part of the entire experience. By listening to your orthodontist’s advice and following his instructions exactly, you can protect your investment and sport a perfect smile for life.
