As we mentioned before in another post, nail biting can cause teeth to crack, chip or wear down their front. There are several things you can do to ease up this habit:
- Cut your nails shorter: If you trim your nails shorter it will be more difficult for you to bite them.
- Get regular manicures: Once you invest in a manicure you would not want to ruin it by biting your nails.
- Wear a bitter-tasting nail polish: Some stores sell special bitter-tasting nail polishes that help stop the habit. If your nails taste awful you will not want to bite them!
- Identify your triggers: Think about what makes you want to bite your nails. By figuring out the causes you can figure out how to stop it.
