Full Abstract: Brass players with irregular side teeth may experience problems with articulations, supporting embouchure muscles in the cheek, and problems with air leaks. These include: muddy attacks, delayed attacks, a feeling of unevenness along the cheek, air pockets along the cheek and an air leak in through the side teeth in cases where the side teeth tilt inward or outward. Treatment options include tooth extraction, filing irregular teeth flat and removable adapters to fill the gaps.
