When I'm eating, one of my upper teeth rubs on a lower tooth and it makes that annoying sensation like when somebody drags their fingernails on a chalkboard. It's possible this has been happening a long time and I just never noticed it.

I can't even tell for sure which teeth are involved. I tried to make it happen on purpose but I couldn't. Nothing has changed with my teeth in over two years.

I think there's nothing that can be done. I certainly wouldn't want to pay for an action if there is one. I'm trying to teach myself to chew differently which is ridiculous. I'm mostly trying to ignore it.

What did your dentist say when you asked about the problem? Did he compare older & recent x-rays?

A tooth can be filed down a bit by your dentist.

Whatever it is I would think that your dentist could at least find the cause, and hopefully offer a solution.

Your teeth are always shifting a little. We develop muscle habits over time too. If it bothers you have a dentist look at the teeth at your next routine exam. Might be a simple fix.
