Braces and salt water?
Has anyone swum in salt water with braces on their teeth? This past weekend's RobbenIsland swim was my first time in salt water since I got my braces on this winter. My gums are completely raw and I can barely eat or drink. My entire face is swollen! I am ready to have them removed before this summer's open water season. Is this going to be a problem as long as they are on?
