Habits Posing Risks to the Teeth

Updated: Dec 17, 2018


Teeth serve many different functions such as chewing and speech. Some unhealthy habits may affect the health of your teeth and how they function.


Key takeaways:

  • All-day snacking on sugary foods encourages growth of plaque bacteria and places the teeth at the risk of cavities

  • Overly enthusiastic brushing of teeth may cause the erosion of tooth enamel leading to sensitivity

  • Nail biting is bad for your teeth and jaws. It could lead to chipped teeth.

Bruxism poses a serious health risk – ask your dentist to check your teeth and gums for any signs of clenching, as this condition can go undetected.
