9 Habits That Damage Your Teeth
Could your everyday habits be damaging your teeth? We use our teeth every day to eat, but those other things you use teeth for might be causing harm.
Chewing on ice: While ice is sugar and calorie-free, chewing on ice can crack your teeth over time. The pressure that occurs when you bite down on the hard surface of ice irritates the tissue inside the tooth, which leads to toothaches.
Grinding your teeth: Constant teeth grinding or jaw clenching can wear your teeth down over time. Talk to your local dentist about getting fitted for a mouth guard to help prevent teeth grinding at night.
