The tongue crib is fixed in my mouth with the braces and I am worried if I can play my alto saxophone.Will my tongue crib stop me from playing my saxophone?I play in a marching band and I really want to keep playing.If you can give me some advise with this or any tips I will appreciate it.Thank you.

Cn you say LOOLOOLOO or TOOTOOTOO? If so. you should still be able to blow and articulate.
Thousands of kids manage to play well with an assortment of hardware in their mouths.
It just takes some experimanting during practice time to see what adaptations you'll need to make.

An appliance used to limit undesirable tongue movements, usually constructed to prevent its protrusion between the anterior teeth.No,my orthodontist said I have a tongue thrust problem.

I meant to ask, but was sorta afraid to, "What exactly is a 'tongue thrust' problem?"

Jesus Christ, man. You should get that signed and framed and hang it next to your bed.

Ahuman behavioral pattern in which the tongue protrudes through the anterior incisors during swallowing, speech, and while the tongue is at rest.My tongue thrust my front teeth causing a open bite and i need the tongue crib to stop the tongue from pushing my teeth while i have my braces.

Is your tongue just too long for your mouth?

What a disappointing action by your band director. Tell him you're going to play the instrument you want to play.
