I just thought I'd see if anyone else has had similar exeriences to me or if they can help. When my adult teeth came through (many moons ago) I was left with a gap as one of my front teeth had stayed up in the gum. After much messing about (to brace or not to brace etc.) I had the tooth removed and reimplanted where it should be, a couple of weeks before starting at Salford Uni to study cornet/flugel. I had gone into some detail with both the orthadontist and my dentist about whether the proceedure would afect my playing and never really got a sensible answer i.e. well a girl who played clarinet had the same thing done and she was all right! Needless to say I had some problems during my first year at Salford, the gap left by the tooth near to the roots of my front two teeth meant that I had to pull my teeth back forward after playing. Very painful :evil: Anyway I ended up on horn as it was decided a bigger mouthpiece would help. It has helped but now I'm doing a lot of playing again I sense some movment (paranoia maybe?!). I have been to see my dentist but he was fairly useless. What I'm wondering is 1) has anyone had similar experiences and how did they sort the problem? 2) Does anyone know of a dentist around the Saddleworth/Oldham area that specialises in brass players teeth? (If not in that area in any area) Thanks in advance everyone!!
