I don't know where else to post this, but I have what might be a somewhat unique situation - I'm afflicted with a rather interesting layout regarding my front teeth, and I'm wondering how others who might have similar issues get around it. I've got a fairly prominent over-bite (nothing like what Freddy Mercury had or anything - rest his soul), which isn't much of a problem. The problem lies with the lineup of my upper front four. The middle incisors are OK, but the outer incisors are pushed forward around 3-4mm, which tends to turn my upper lip into hamburger after too much time with the mouthpiece applied. Oddly enough, the leading edge of the outer incisors fall right in line with the inner rim of most Euph & Baritone mouthpieces. I think this outlines it fairly enough: -__- (lip towards the top, no gaps in the middle, in fact, the outer incisors tend to overlap towards the middle 1mm or so). It's not grotesque to look at or anything... just not very mouthpiece friendly. My question is: how does everybody deal with similar issues? Do you have appliances made specifically to combat the issue? Are there any special techniques you use besides the usual to help alleviate the problem? I've so far tried using some dental wax to fill the gap, which seems to help for the short term (30 minutes or so) until it gets smooshed and I have to reform it to continue playing. The drawbacks so far are that the wax tends to lose its shape as I play... and oddly enough having the gap 'filled' stretches out my upper register a bit, but makes it harder to transition back down towards the bottom of the staff (Bass clef). Upper 'F' was my limit in school, but recently with the wax, I've discovered 'G' and 'Ab' on occasion as well as a greater control over 'D' thru 'F'. But again, getting back down in the weeds is tougher as a result. I'm a little too old to consider orthodontic work at this point... plus, that might make things even worse having the appliances installed all the time. Anybody have any advice or similar experiences? Thanks in advance.
