Does anyone else experience this - I mainly play chrom, but I've been
trying to do more on the diatonic lately. After playing diatonic for
a while, practicing bends and all, I start to feel pressure on my
front teeth. This seems to really bother me after a while.
I don't think there's anything unusual about my embouchure, and my
teeth are healthy enough. It mainly happens when I'm puckering and
bending notes. When tongue blocking I don't have the issue, and when
playing chrom I never have the issue.
It's like when I bend there is some pressure where the harp pulls in
to the face just a little more. 10 minutes of bending doesn't bother
me, but if I do more my front two teeth feel as though they may have
shifted back a little. It can really bug me sometimes, and sometimes
just putting pressure against the teeth with my thumb in the outward
direction relieves the feeling and realigns my bite. I think I am
talking very small degrees here, but it seems to make a difference.
(I think my overbite is very slight, where the front teeth are barely
past the bottom teeth, and the slightest change is really annoying.)
Is this a common thing to have happen, or does anyone else experience
this? Is there a way to minimize this?
Thanks for any advice,
