Your teeth are designed to help you speak, smile and chew your food. Using your teeth for jobs that they were not designed for, such as opening bottles or packages, can cause damage to them! You may think opening a bottle cap is harmless. However, this simple action can wear down your tooth enamel, or chip, or crack your teeth. Remember, your teeth are not tools!
