Hello listers

by chance after the discussion on this list about teeth one of my students
came with the following problem yesterday:

In October she run with her head against a door. Since that time she has
troubles with her teeth, wasn't able to play clarinet a few weeks. Since
that time she had problems with her note attack: she stopped tongueing (she
is too young to use this word in an erotic sense). At first I wondered why,
and tried to correct this, but only yesterday she told me it was too painful
to do so. The dentist had told her she had a contusion in one of her front

She enjoyes her clarinet very much, always was an eager, though just
normally gifted student. Now she is afraid she will have to give up
clarinet, as the problem, the contusion, according to her dentist, never
will go away.

Now of course my question is: what can be done to make her tongue (more or
less) correctly? She had a wonderful double-tongue, but she lost that
ability too, as it also is too painful.

Thanks for any help you can offer
