Do you rest your top teeth on your bottom teeth?

Dealing with dental lately...I got asked this. I didn't even think of it really. When not talking or chewing...if the top row rests on the bottom. My answer...yes. I've not really thought about it until recently...but yes, mine do and I didn't think that was a problem...

My dentist said the top and bottom shouldn't touch...even in rest. Mouth guards at bedtime lol...wow lol.

Just wondering...do YOU rest your top to your bottom teeth when not chewing or talking?

  • I have a little bit of an overbite - I thought your top teeth were supposed to rest on top of the bottom teeth though - guess not.

  • No. I just realized it now. Unless I clench my jaw, my teeth don't touch when I'm not talking or moving.

  • Yes, I actually clench them pretty hard. I have a huge problem with my TMJ. It cracks so loudly it is gross. I have to wear a night guard and it bugs the heck out of me. I sometimes will take it off during the night without even knowing it.

  • Not really, but I'm a "mouth breather" half of the time, so that could be part of it, although that is bad for your teeth too! LOL. Can't win for losing!
