Nail Biting Fact!

by Carlston Dental Group


Biting your nails can cause split nails, but did you know that it can affect your teeth as well?

Biting your nails will make the enamel, the protective layer of your teeth crack which allows bacteria to enter and may cause cavities. Patients that bite their nails often may create gaps between their teeth overtime. Nail biting can even be associate with jaw pain and headaches from tension in the jaws.


Be sure to ask your Dental Professional or Family Dentist for the facts and issues surrounding this common habit. The truth maybe hard-to-swallow.
