You may not always be aware of the bad habits that can damage your teeth. However, some of the behaviors we do without thinking can do the most harm to our oral health. We’ve shared some common things that can easily chip, crack, or dislodge a tooth, such as using your teeth as tools, crunching ice, or grinding your teeth. Others can increase your risk for cavities, such as snacking all day. Or, if you brush too hard, it can scrape your tooth enamel.
