    Six Actions That Damage Your Teeth

    Brushing your teeth too hard will have its consequences. Brushing too hard wears down tooth enamel, leading to sensitivity and tooth decay.

    Key takeaways:

    • Chewing on ice is a potential cause for damaged teeth. Making it a regular habit will lead to chipped or cracked teeth.
    • Using the teeth to open bottles and packaging will result in cracked teeth and even tooth decay.
    •    Snacking between meals increases the contact with sugar and teeth. It increases the growth of bacteria that cause plaque buildup and tooth decay.

    Chewing ice may seem like a harmless and calorie-free way to cool down, but in reality, you could be causing real damage to your teeth. If it becomes a regular habit, it can lead to cracked and chipped teeth, damage to tooth enamel and problems with dental work such as fillings and crowns.
