For some reason my bottom front teeth have been touching the back of my front top teeth. I have been doing this for a month or two I think and I don't know why I am doing it and how to get rid of it. Thanks.

Good day,

It is completely normal for your bottom teeth to contact the back surface of your top teeth, when you close your mouth. This is part of normal occlusion.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. It is normal that our teeth touch as we go through active and passive movements. It might be that you are only noticing it now.

if you are worried about your bite, maybe let your dentist have a look. If a malocclusion is present, this can sometimes be fixed with minimal or specialized orthodontic treatment.
