How should a perfect bite look like?
Also question is, are your back teeth supposed to touch when you bite down?
An open bite – when the back teeth are closed, but the front teeth don't meet, or when the front teeth meet, but the back teeth don't touch. A deep bite – when top teeth completely cover the bottom teeth. A crossbite – when the bottom teeth are outside of the top teeth.
Additionally, should your top and bottom front teeth touch? First, they share the idea that the upper and lower teeth should fit together evenly, with no one tooth hitting higher than another. Also, when the upper and lower jaws move from side to side, the front teeth should touch and the back teeth should not.
Also, how do you tell if your bite is off?
There are a number of ways of telling if your bite is off. If you tap your teeth together as you normally would, check to see if you hear a sharp sound, this could be the sound of many teeth touching at the same time. If the sound is muffled or you may have a tentative bite?
How can I improve my bite?
Chew Sugarless Gum to Strengthen Your Bite Similar to chewing on vegetables, sugarless gum automatically is good practice for your jaw and will help strengthen your bite. Additionally chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes after meals can help prevent tooth decay, according to the American Dental Association (ADA).
