Your teeth is an important part of your mouth, and is important for food digestion. However, many expose their teeth to dangerous habits which aren’t good for the teeth.

These are some of them below:

2. Smoking

Smoking can cause all manner of dangers to your oral health; such as gum disease, stains on the teeth, raise the risk of mouth cancer and dry up the mouth, which could cause a build up of plaque.

3. Soda

The acidity in soda is bad for your teeth; it can damage your enamel and cause decay around your gum. It’s even worse when you sip soda for a long time.

4. Nail biting

Biting your nail is bad for your teeth; it puts too much pressure on the teeth and can move the teeth out of its place. It can even do damage to your enamel.

5. Using teeth as a tool

People use their teeth as bottle opener, to cut objects and do certain chores in the house, but that’s bad for the teeth. It can cause your teeth to crack and cause other problems for the teeth.

6. Chewing ice

The cold temperature of ice and its hardness can are not healthy for your teeth and can cause serious teeth damage.
