Why You Shouldn’t Use Your Teeth as Tools

Recently, AP News reported that Thomas Edison used to bite into his piano in order to “hear” the sounds. While it may have been helpful for him, it’s certainly not the behavior you want to emulate. When you use your teeth as tools, you run the risk of chipping, cracking, or even dislodging a tooth. This can lead to a painful dental emergency situation that can easily be avoided!
