People have been using their teeth as tools for many years all the way back to ancient times. Not only are teeth used to open packages or bottles, but there have also been other unique ways people have used their teeth aside from chewing. AP News recently reported that Thomas Edison used to bite his piano so he could “hear” the sounds.

Unfortunately,  even though it may be an instinct to tear open a package or bottle with your teeth, it can do serious damage to your smile. We’ve seen many patients walk through our doors in a dental emergency because of this dangerous instinct!

So, take caution and resist the urge to use your teeth in a way that can damage them. To schedule a free consultation with Rod Eccles, DDS, call us today at 317-682-0884 or conveniently schedule online.
