Nervous Nail Biters!
Do you ever get so nervous to the point where you bite your nails? This bad habit can cause some repercussions for your oral health! Sometimes, if you bite down on your nail hard enough the impact of your teeth hitting together can even cause a chipped tooth! Other problems that it can cause include developing a gap between your front teeth or changing the way your teeth come in, causing orthodontic problems. In addition, this bad habit can also cause gingivitis from the bacteria carried underneath your nails into your mouth! Try to kick the bad habit to avoid these oral health problems. You can also speak to us at Smiles First in Saint Laurent for suggestions on maintaining a good oral health.
