All biting your nails will get you is a lot of chipped teeth later down the line.  Don't do this.

'If no stomach acid is being produced - which can be due to an infection with the helicobacter pylori bug or the condition pernicious anaemia (where the body doesn't absorb enough vitamin B12) - then this changes the type of bacteria in the stomach,' says Dr Read.

In some cases, these bacteria produce hydrogen, which can make belches flammable.

'One patient told me she lit up a cigarette and two plumes of flames came out of her nostrils,' says Dr Read.

If nail biting can damage your teeth, something is seriously wrong with either your teeth or your nails.

It's really not a big deal. There's a gene for it that has been isolated as well as a gene for picking scabs and pulling out hair. Of the three, nail biting is the one that carries the least consequence. I live with a nail biter and both my mother and brother have that compulsion. They all have fine teeth. I don't know where you are getting your info, but it's seriously out of date.

People who think joint cracking is a mystery haven't had enough joint pain.  Your joints crack when one of the muscles around them is causing irritation by staying in spasm around the joint.  Cracking the joint lets you introduce a brief burst of agitation to the nerves around the joint, overwhelming the signal and letting you release the joints to their full range of movement.  How much you can crack your joints, and how much relief it gets you, is directly caused by how loose your joints are and whether your muscles around a joint are of similar relative strength.

I don't get why people get obsessed with what causes the noise and the process of how it works, and ignore the function of it.

And again, you are wrong and floating on a river in Egypt.

Seriously, you will see the effects in a few years when you bite into a sandwich and wonder why your tooth chipped, only you wont relate the problem to its origins

I've had all of my lower front teeth bonded, twice.

From biting my nails.

I still do it though.
 
2013-04-09 10:58:44 AM

A) I don't bite my nails so...

B) From the article you posted:

"In fact, the bookPediatric Dentistry by Pinkham states:

There is no evidence that nail biting can cause...dental change other than minor enamel fractures." 
"Keep in mind that some of the following negative effects are very rare and won't always occur with everyone, so you might want to take them with a grain of salt! "

"I was unable to find a study to confirm this"

"Obviously, many people do bite their nails without any dental problems."

I can confirm nail-biting can chip teeth.

It isn't the nail that causes the problem, it's the tooth-on-tooth action. /so hot

Nice way to cherry pick. I grind my teeth. I am non-compliant with my mouth guard as I spit it out in my sleep. My teeth are now flattened and ground down and my dentists are quite happy with both my teeth and my gums. And trust me. Grinding teeth is a hell of a lot worse than biting nails.

If you've ever spent any time in a women's dressing room with dancers, you will hear an absolute symphony of cracking. I still hit my toes and back and fingers every morning. The toes are especially satisfying.

I treat this stuff day in and day out, argue all you want, but all of the dentists, ADA, AGD, AACD, etc etc will tell you the same thing, that biting your nails WILL damage your teeth.  Bruxing on top of that just accelerates it5.  Time is on my side and will prove me right.

So at what age should I start to see this damage from my bruxism? And at what age should my mother and brother and boyfriend start to see damage from biting their nails? I'd love a timeline for this so I can plan ahead.

I maintain nothing on earth, with the possible exception of oral sex, compares to the burst of satisfaction and release you can get from learning to pop the ribs right between your shoulder blades forward enough to crack them and release pressure off the vertebrae after decades of constant low level discomfort.  Not the spine, by twisting, but learning to flex your pecs forward while bracing your shoulders up with your deltoids, so your ribs crack. If you've got a head forward posture at all, learning to do this should be the top of your list.

No, they won't, unless you acknowledge the difference between nail chewing/biting and compulsive nail chomping.  The kind of chewing they are talking about in this article involves more or less making a scissor action on the edge to break the nail, and then using your teeth as a plane to split off a piece of nail, using saliva to soften the nail as you go.  That's different than the hard vigorous compulsive nail chomping using force that results in teeth snapping together with a pronounced click.  Using your teeth to chew off a nail gently, even if you do it down to the nub as a bad habit, doesn't damage your teeth any more than any other chewing, and nail enamel is a lot softer than many foods that no one thinks twice about.

Damage comes from clicking your teeth together with excessive force.  There's plenty of ways to chew your nails off without clicking your teeth together.

I'm in my late 30's, My first bottom tooth(when I was actually in the process of biting my nail) broke about 5 years ago or so.  The others followed rather quickly.

While, I guess in some way, my poor dental care in my youth, combined with my genetically inferior British Teeth were somewhat to blame, the fact I have been a life ling nail biter, and the fact that my teeth broke while actually biting my nails seems to jibe with the other posters assertion.
