    Teeth touching has a two-fold benefit as it develops (or redevelops) some facial muscles that aren't normally used effectively, creating more strength in the supporting musculature (which decreases fatigue) and promotes a "jaw forward" or "aligned embouchure" setting (basically, repetition creating muscle memory).

    ok, I get it...I always have my jaw forward when I play (upstream player). It was the closed teeth thing that cought my attention. But like you sayd, different muscles come in to place and I get that now after trying to play a bit with my teeths closed. I can understand that it really exercices the muscles that keeps the aperture closed/small.
