Subj: PROSTHETIC DEVICES
Date: Sat, 4 Mar 1995 21:49:48 -0500
Hi! I am a third year clarinet major at the University of Prince
Edward Island. I have been on this list for a couple of months and
haven't written yet. Concerning the prothetic devices, I need to use
something on my bottom teeth all of the time. I have tried cigarette
papers, hockey tape, and many other things before I found something
that is really comfortable. I now use a couple layers of masking
tape. I have to change them often but they work really well. I know
of some other people that use sport guards for teeth. They cut off a
small section, boil it, form it over their teeth and cut off any
excess material. You can make it as thick or as thin as you want it.
They find it really comfortable to play with.
I hope this is helpful to anyone.
