If it's really a concern, a voice instructor could help you figure out the proprioception in one or two lessons.

2. Your shift should only be as long as the time you are useful.
#1 is exactly what I was going to say... how far do you have to open your mouth for christ's sake? lol I've been wearing a cage forever and I've never had trouble breathing.

The visual aspect really only comes to play once you switch from one to the other, but it goes away after like one skate, really.
