Hello, I am jazz trumpet major in New Orleans and I have recently been having problems with my mouth. Each time I play my back tooth on the right side has been poking my mouth while I play, and cutting in to my cheeks. My playing has been great but this is the only thing bothering me. Any suggestions?

That happened to me before and I know your situation. I think you should just rest it out for a few days and try not to press the mouthpiece into your face so hard. Hope this helps:)!
