    It sounds kind of dumb, but I don't know anything about cavities or the teeth as part of the embouchure. If I get a cavity drilled, would it affect my trumpet playing in any way?

    If a cavity is part of your embouchure, then you have a problem every time that you visit the dentist.

    It is not a part of mine or any of my students.

    If your playing is weak, the trauma of a dentist visit gives one a further excuse not to practice or to whine about why one sounds bad.

    Serious players are almost impossible to knock down. What kind are you?

    No

    Maybe temporarily until the meds wear off, but no, it will not affect your rumpet playing.

    I don't know, but a cavity may affect my "rumpet" playing.

    Just depends on what cavity, and what is doing the drilling..:-o

    Dentists (and anyone really) should definately stay away from my rumpet, that's all I'm sayin.:lol:


    Sorry guys, couldn't resist...:thumbsup:
