Full Abstract: Reports on research done in conjunction with Gebert's dissertation (cited as RILM 95-10322). Findings indicate that even well-trained brass players induce abnormal motion of the upper incisors while producing their highest and/or loudest tones. Even with relatively slight pressure from the mouthpiece, tooth motion can be very considerable. There is no consistent correlation between the pressure of the mouthpiece against the teeth and the degree of experience of the player (some experienced players maintain relatively high mouthpiece pressure). Metal guards to reinforce the teeth can help to prevent some, but not all, kinds of undesirable tooth motion.
