Aside from needing her teeth floated, a horse will develop that problem from having their teeth banged with the bit each time she is bridled.
I cup the bit in my left hand and use my thumb on her bars to open her mouth while using my right hand to lift the bit into her mouth and slip the bridle over her ears. Doing it this way I can insert her bit without hitting her teeth. Taking the bit out, I'll slip the bridle off her poll and wait for her to open her mouth making sure I don't bang her teeth on the way out. I don't rush the process in either direction.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
