Tip Tuesday!

Are you a nail Biter?

Your manicure may not be the only thing that is affected by your nail biting. Studies show that nail biting that is brought on by stress, or anxiety does not only affect your nails, but also your teeth. Biting your nails from stress, anxiety, boredom, has harsh effects on your teeth. The biting action can cause you to crack, or chip your teeth. Biting your nails is just that but it also includes clenching while trying to force your front teeth through the hard surface of your nails. Patients might find that wearing a night guard can help deter nail biting, and help prevent further damage.
