Many of us do things with our teeth that we really should not be doing. These habits may seem harmless but, they can be harmful to your teeth. How many of you when feeling stressed bite your nails? A very common nervous habit that may not only chip your teeth, but due to the constant protruding position and pressure placed on the jaw, can cause jaw dysfunction. To help hinder this habit you can try using a bitter tasting nail polish. When encountering situations that may cause stress try holding something to keep your fingers busy. Whatever works to keep you from biting your nails do it! Your teeth and jaw thank you.
