I am a trumpet player, though classically trained. I had to stop playing because of braces, and the change in the shape of my mouth-- it was quite discouraging at first. It's nice to see a dentist who caters to the sensitive needs of musicians, most dentists don't understand how important every thing in the mouth is to us!
You're absolutely correct. The needs of wind players are not taught in any Dental school and it is only through playing the trumpet for 38 years, both classical and jazz, that I am able to truly help musicians with their mouths.
I have saved many careers and put back together mouths that were restored improperly for horn players. It's wonderful to be able to fuse these two passions together and help people.
