When a happy mouth bites together , should all teeth touch at the same time, or should the front teeth touch first or should the back molars touch first.? I just can't seem to find this answer anywhere. My new TMJ dentist made me a spint for my denture and he said he does not want my molars touching- that he wants them a hair apart. Does all this sound right to yous, I'll tell you in the last 2 days since wearing it my ears are not humming constantly like they have for the last 3 months. Thanks.

Re: Bite

I have an anterior open bite from TMJ which means only my back molars hit. None of my other teeth touch and it sends my temporal muscles into constant spasm and gives me terrible headaches about 5 days a week. It sounds like your splint is helping so I would keep wearing it. I always thought, however that all teeth are supposed to touch when you bite down.
