Your splint in? Mine don't and my neck and temporal muscles spasm and are tight. I wonder if this is the reason? Thanks.

Re: Do your back teeth touch when you have

Yes, my son's teeth do touch when his splint is in. You should see your dentist over this problem. To chew food, you would need to use more force to get your teeth to meet, thus creating more tension and spasm in your muscles. Good luck.
