Full Abstract: Perfect teeth do not equate perfect sound in brass playing, though irregular teeth can cause problems in slurring, trilling, accuracy, range, tonguing or endurance. There are several options in lieu of orthodontia: metal adapters which slide over the problem tooth and provide an even front surface of the teeth. Bonding is another way to reshape the teeth without damage to the teeth. Bonding involves the adhesion of plastic material directly to the tooth where it is recontoured.
