Solutions for Kids (and Adults) with braces

One common difficulty among young (and sometimes older) trumpet (and brass) players is the need for corrective orthodonture that requires wearing braces
I think two unique factors make me unique in my ability to help trumpet (or any brass) player who wears braces:

Can I continue to play trumpet while I have braces?

What are my options as far as orthodontics?

What can I do about the discomfort that comes with having braces and playing trumpet (or any brass instrument)?

What should I do if I get a cut on the underside of my lip?

What about mouthpiece changes?

Should I stop playing trumpet?

What about getting my braces off?
