Stop Bad Dental Habits

Posted on 4/10/2015 by Truman Nielsen

A boy with bad dental habits chewing on an icicle.Bad habits - we all have them, but when they affect our teeth, we should really try to see what we can do to put an end to them. Many habits are subconscious; you might never realize that you are doing them, while others are obvious, yet very difficult to overcome.

If you suffer from any of these habits, it is time to talk to us to figure out ways to put an end to them:

1.  Chewing Ice - Are you guilty of chomping on the ice that is left when your drink is gone? While this might seem like an innocent habit, it could slowly be fracturing your teeth. You might not see the fracture lines because they are small and occurs slowly, but over time you could begin to experience issues with your dental health and even suffer tooth loss as a result.

2.  Opening things with your teeth - Do you use your teeth as your package opener? This is not what they were intended to do. Some people even use their teeth to open stubborn bottles. While the habit seems harmless enough, all it takes is one time to fracture a tooth or cause it to become loose. Use the tools that were meant to open these items and leave your teeth for chewing.

3.  Grinding your teeth - This habit is one that many people do not realize they do, even if they do it during the day. Stress plays a large role in the reason that people grind their teeth and there are many ways to decrease that stress. Whether you grind your teeth during the day or at night, we have solutions to help you put an end to it and save your teeth from suffering chips, cracks and even being lost all together.
