Teeth are for Chewing Food.
Just like a Swiss Army Knife can’t chew food, so should the Swiss Army knife be left to perform functions like popping off bottle caps; tearing bags open; chewing ice or hard candy; gripping rope; cutting threads or any other imaginative use that isn’t chewing food.
Chipping or Breaking a Tooth
An impact dealt to a tooth in just the wrong way can cleave enamel off a tooth or break off a piece. You’ll want to see your dentist and depending on the severity, may not want to wait. Call your dentist and describe the situation to get exact instructions on what to do in your particular situation. Most dentist have emergency numbers and can be reached after hours.
