Some of your bad habits could be damaging your teeth. Here are the worst offenders and what you can do to avoid them.
Using Teeth As A Tool: Everyone has used their teeth to rip open packaging to tags.
Nail Biting: Biting your nails is extremely unhygienic and can also damage the nail. Using your teeth as nail clippers can damage your teeth.
Chewing Ice: Chewing ice creates a great deal of unnecessary pressure on your jaw and teeth. If you need to chew something, sugar-free gum is a great alternative.
Using toothpicks incorrectly: Toothpicks can damage your teeth and gums. If you have food stuck in your teeth, dentists recommend brushing and flossing.
Call your dentist to make an appointment to speak about ways to help curb problems.
