I like your plan. Nothing more to say really. Yes always bring your horn.

As a person with a decent sound, you might want to try playing just a minute a day with a double lip, playing low E. Start at p<f>p. Just that one note. Then maybe record it now and compare it in a few months. See what you think; meaning if the dental treatments are working. If you don't like your sound in 2 or 3 months revisit your options before too much happens to your month. Sure you can play more with a double lip, it's up to you. I just want to make sure your upper embouchure muscles remain strong during this procedure. I just want you to have that feeling of what the muscles are doing.

I guess I am saying you might need a reference point.

If your upper teeth hurt a lot use a patch, but I often see a major error. Players put the patch too far forward, right next to the tip of the mouthpiece. This is just so wrong. The patch should be at where your teeth are, a shade forward and behind the area. It shouldn't be too thick and it shouldn't cover the whole beak of the mouthpiece. This is actually why I play double lip. When I had braces like yourself, my upper teeth hurt so badly at times and I put my upper lip over my top teeth so they wouldn't hurt when I played. I had no idea that this was actually a good thing in future years. So at a very young age I always sounded better than the other kids. Yes again, clarinet playing shouldn't hurt. It should be a blast. I want you to have a nice sound and really enjoy playing.
