Bad Habits That Can Affect Your Dental Health

There are a number of habits that can lead to damage of your tooth structure and surrounding tissues. Some damage can happen instantly as a chip or a crack and others can occur over a length of time. Listed below are a few of these habits:


– Nail Biting

– Chewing on ice

– Using teeth to tear or open items

– Holding items with your teeth for a length of time (toothpicks, pins, pens)

– Playing with oral piercings

– Clenching or grinding


It is important to understand how these particular habits can lead to tooth damage and to discuss with your dental professionals if you participate in any of them. Together you can work with them to help find ways to break these tendencies and if any harm has already occurred to your dentition how to restore it.
