Some habits can wreck your teeth unknowingly. Twenty-five percent of U.S. adults over age 65 have lost all their teeth. Read this before you run to your Dentist in Emergency.
Chewing on Ice
It’s natural and sugar free, so you might think ice is harmless. But munching on hard, frozen cubes can chip or even crack your teeth. And if your mindless chomping irritates the soft tissue inside a tooth, regular toothaches may follow. Hot foods and cold foods may trigger quick, sharp jabs of pain or a lingering toothache. Next time you get the urge for ice, chew some sugarless gum instead.
