basemetal: ginandbacon: dental change other than minor enamel fractures."

Guess what happens to those enamel fractures later.........

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.

DId you bother to read the rest of the quotes from your own article?

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 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."

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.

I have been biting my nails for about 32 years and have never chipped a tooth doing it.

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

/unless you just love giving money to your friendly local dentist

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

I don't care if it's the Daily Fail. I'm using this to justify all of my bad habits. So there.
