    habits that harm your teeth

    Regular brushing and flossing aren’t the only care that you should give the teeth. The teeth are likely to suffer other forms of damage other than tooth decay.

    Key takeaways:

    • Chewing on ice is a potential cause for damaged teeth. Making it a regular habit will lead to chipped or cracked teeth.
    • Using the teeth to open bottles and packaging will result in cracked teeth and even tooth decay.
    •    Snacking between meals increases the contact between sugar and teeth. It increases the growth of bacteria that cause plaque buildup and tooth decay.

    Chewing ice may seem like a harmless and calorie-free way to cool down, but in reality, you could be causing real damage to your teeth. If it becomes a regular habit, it can lead to cracked and chipped teeth, damage to tooth enamel and problems with dental work such as fillings and crowns.
