I don't know how i discovered this but if i push/tap the back of my front top teeth with my tongue, whilst a finger is on the front, the teeth seem to move slightly? is this normal? Are my teeth actually moving or is it a combination or perhaps my tongue and/or fingers giving way?

Has/can anyone else experience(d) this feeling? It's making me a tad worried

Many thanks

I went through a similar situation and while I'm not a dentist or a doctor (and I don't even play one on tv!), I'd say that no movement is normal. In my case, it was partially my bite being off, so the dentist shave a bit off of a recent filling and it fixed it (at least in that case - currently having other issues).

It's always worth a visit to the dentist, even if it just soothes your worries.
