Have you ever used your teeth to open a package? Or worse, to open up a bottle? While it may seem easier than grabbing a pair of scissors or a bottle opener, when you use your teeth as tools, it can actually lead to a dental emergency. 

However, you certainly aren’t alone if you can’t resist your chompers as a great tool. Thomas Edison used his teeth to hear the sounds from his piano. Just watch this video by AP News:

If you want to avoid harming your smile, avoid using your teeth for anything but biting and chewing food. Anything else could lead to costly restorative care.
