The Dangers of Nail Biting: More Than Meets the Eye

Many individuals bite their nails when they are nervous or anxious. There are several negative results associated with this bad habit and many of these will involve much more than the nails themselves. For example, chipping your teeth can result in a flawed smile and a trip to the dentist.

What other consequences are associated with nail biting and why is it important to break this cycle?

– Bacteria from underneath the fingernails can easily enter into your digestive tract.

– You will erode protective tooth enamel over time; leading to more cavities.

– Biting your nails can cause further damage to the gums.

Bacteria are then introduced into the oral cavity that wouldn’t normally be, which could harm your smile by making your mouth more acidic or even your body by contracting infections like pinworm.
