Braces and Stomach Problem

I have a condition similar to GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). My esophageal sphincter is loose, and it causes me to throw up in my mouth every 2-3 minutes. I've had this condition for as long as I can remember, and it's causing a big problem with my braces. Every time I throw up, strings and chunks of food get stuck in my braces again! Brushing and flossing only fixes it until I throw up again. I've had braces for about a year now, and frankly, I'm sick of it. It's embarrassing to have people point out food in my braces to me!
Is there something that I can do or use (other than surgery on my sphincter) to help me with this problem?
