How to Kiss with Braces: 9 Steps (with Pictures)

Learning to kiss can be boring enough, but doing it using braces requires a brand new learning curve. But don't worry – if you take it easy and follow a few simple techniques, your kisses will be so good that you won't even notice the presence of braces. If you want to know how to kiss with braces, follow these steps.


Part 1 of 3: Proceeding Slowly

Kiss With Braces Step 1

Step 1. Wait at least two weeks before you start kissing in earnest

When you or the person you want to kiss puts on the braces, it won't be wise to start a make-out session as soon as you leave the dentist's office. The braces will hurt at first and you will need time to get comfortable with the metal in your mouth. You will also need to learn to eat, brush your teeth and complete any other tasks made difficult by the braces.

You can still kiss your loved one on the lips until it suits you, but don't go beyond that

Step 2. Start with closed-lipped kisses

Jamming your teeth into the metal of the braces is not an exciting way to start kissing someone. Even if you want to use your tongue, it's necessary to start calmly and just kiss using your lips – you can evolve as soon as you get the hang of it. Until then, try adding softness to your lips with the help of a little lip gloss.

Step 3. Take it easy, especially if it's your first time kissing

Start very gently to feel what the kiss is like. As you practice, you will learn where and when to apply pressure (gentle at first) and what to avoid. As you kiss, explore the linger's closed lips and measure their comfort level before proceeding. Step back if you don't feel comfortable enough to take the next step.

Kiss With Braces Step 4

Step 1. Press your lips gently against your partner's

If the movement is too hard and too fast, you can hurt the other person by forcing their teeth and gums against their lips. You could end up getting hurt, too. Once you're comfortable with these kisses, start kissing even more passionately using just your lips. You don't need your tongue to give passionate, spicy kisses.

Let your partner know that you use braces if she still doesn't trust you

Step 2. Keep your tongue away from the device

Regardless of whether you or your partner wears braces, you need to spread your lips wide and open your mouth wide enough for your tongue to move between your loved one's teeth without getting stuck. If you're careless, you can cut your lips or gums and hurt the other person's tongue.

Step 3. Don't be afraid to blow it

Of course, you should start slowly, but this can generate anticipation, making the kissing session even more exciting. So once your tongue is comfortably placed between your partner's teeth and both tongues are positioned away from the braces, you can comfortably explore your loved one's mouth. Move your tongue in circles, or just move it up and down to enjoy the feeling.

Don't be worried – the braces won't stick together. This is a MYTH. Appliances are not magnetic

Kiss With Braces Step 7

Step 1. Avoid eating difficult foods before kissing

It's not nice to get too paranoid about the situation of your mouth before kisses so as not to lose the romance of spontaneous kissing. However, you need to pay a minimum of attention to the situation of your mouth. Of course you shouldn't starve yourself before the kiss, but be careful with your food. Any food that melts in your mouth and is easy to chew and swallow is acceptable. Any food that is crunchy and takes time to chew – such as mangoes – must be avoided.

For example: go to the movies and know that there will be some kisses in the middle of the movie? Bring chocolate to see the movie instead of popcorn. Popcorn can easily get stuck in the teeth – and therefore in the braces

Step 2. Don't make fun of the person with braces

If you are on this page because your partner has put on a device, be extremely sensitive to their situation. Don't make a joke if you want to kiss the person again. The partner is probably very sensitive and is worried enough about kissing. You need to make your loved one feel good!

If both have braces, great! So you can laugh at the little accidents here and there together

Step 3. Consider taking additional steps to keep the sexiness high

If kissing with the braces doesn't give you any pleasure or if the sharp edges of the metal are killing the romance, you can take some additional steps. Sharp edges can be covered with dental wax or silicone or even removed by the dentist. These measures, however, should only be attempted according to your comfort level.


  • If you're at the movies and ready to kiss, try not to eat popcorn. Popcorn kernels really are difficult to remove from teeth, and let's not even talk about braces. If you're trying to cheat hunger, chew gum. It will be good for you, for your kiss, in short, for everyone. Spit out the gum before the kiss, as nothing is worse than having a sticky brace in the middle of kissing.
  • Relax and have fun. Kissing is about romance. If you're worried about the braces all the time, kissing can suffer.
  • Keep your breath fresh! Do not press too hard on your partner's lips if you are wearing braces – this can cause discomfort. If you are French kissing someone with braces, keep your tongue away from the back of your mouth. This is where the sharpest edges of the device are. Otherwise, just relax and don't worry too much. The more you think about the device, the less engaging and romantic your kiss will be.
  • Focus on the kiss. Just be aware of the device, but not so much that you forget the moment. The other person is probably not bothered by the braces, as they like you and want to kiss.
  • Just relax and take it easy. The person you kiss with obviously knows your situation and will be careful.
  • Kissing is having fun and enjoying the fact that someone really loves you to the point where you don't allow anything or anyone to get in the way of your romantic experience.
  • Basically, be aware of your partner's braces the first few times. You will get used to them easily and it will become an instinct.
  • Too much food can stick to your appliances. Have good hygiene and brush your teeth often.
  • You should always remember to brush your teeth and be careful when kissing.
  • If you're a little nervous, ask your partner to take it easy.
