Dr. Dental – Miss Using Your Teeth

11/11/23 9:38 AM

Don’t Use Your Teeth as Tools. 

I am sure many people at one time or another use their teeth to open a wrapper or to bite off a stubborn tag on a new shirt. However, if you want to keep your teeth looking great, then stop using your teeth as tools. Using your teeth in such a way can damage your teeth. You can easily crack or chip your teeth or cause poor jaw alignment by wearing down your teeth unevenly. You also want to avoid using your teeth as hands. 

Do not hold items in your mouth even for a short time. Do not chew on things such as pens and pencils. Do not chew on your ice, as you can chip your tooth. Chewing on ice, using your teeth to crack open nuts, or biting your fingernails can all lead to distorted teeth.
