Abstract

A professional horn player visited his dentist after experiencing pain. His protruding lower incisor was causing soreness of the lower lip, and upper anterior crowding was irritating the centre of the upper lip. These irregularities affected the patient's ability to produce an optimal sound. During treatment, the lower anterior teeth were aligned using a fixed appliance and the irregularity in the upper front teeth was reduced with a composite veneer. The hornist experienced considerable improvements after these two dental corrections.
