If one's bite is bad and two teeth are constantly impacting one another causing pain problems, is there an advisable way to prevent impact from constantly occurring, for example, with a squishy, gummy piece of rubber which can be held between the teeth? (Prior to getting real orthodontics).

My prior research has been asking a dental hygienist who responded in the negative and googling "prevent teeth from impacting" or similar but with often results on topics I wasn't looking for due to keyword mismatch.
