So i got a telecaster and it was buzzin like hell, so i decided i wanted the strings to be higher, and i adjusted the saddles so that there was no buzz/rattle-sound. Now the buzzing is away and the saddles are quite high, actually they are almost at it's max. It plays amazing and it sounds great, i'm just wondering if it is normal and if it is OK to just change the saddles, am i damaging stuff?

Just to make myself clear, in the image i posted here i changed the parts on top of the saddles not the parts on the side with the spring attached to it. Now this is not my guitar, but just a random image.

So can i just change these saddles without being mathematical about it, just by touch? Or can i damage something, even though it sounds great...

(btw is this the same as raising the action? Or is the action something else?)

Yes by changing the saddle heigh you are changing the action.

There is nothing wrong with changing the saddle heigh (that is why they are adjustable) the height of the saddles is generally adjusted so that is also conforms to the radius of the fingerboard, but it is up to you what is comfortable.
