6 Bad Habits That Can Destroy Your Teeth

The teeth are an aspect of the body that most people ignore until it begins to hurt. 
Therefore, some of the habits you should desist from are:
1. Chewing ice 
I have met people who have no qualms with popping some ice cubes in their mouth. While this might seem like a fun habit, chewing on such hard substances can chip the teeth, not to mention what the coldness can do to the teeth- weaken them.
2. Tongue piercing
While it may seem like a fashion statement, you pose the risk of infection. Also, metal consistently rubbing against your gum can weaken the gum.
3. Soft drinks
Many of us can’t eat a meal without a bottle of soft drink but the sugar and acidic content wear the enamel.
4. Grinding your teeth
So many people do this unconsciously, especially in their sleep. Over time, this habit can wear the teeth and even cause pain. It is best to wear a mouth guard at night.
5. Using your teeth to open stuff
Your teeth may seem so hard and indestructible but they are not meant to open bottles, presents and cut wrappers and cellotapes. 
6. Starchy foods
Potato chips, plantain, yam, chips etc. are usually broken down by bacteria in the teeth as acid. The longer they remain between your teeth, the more damage they cause. So floss after eating.

If an egg doesn't get fertilized, the body can't sustain this special womb, so hormone levels drop and the lining is shed. "The bleeding is because there is a blood supply that went into those tissues, and it bleeds until the tissue comes out enough and the blood vessels start to close off," says Rowen. 2. What it Feels Like
Women may already be in a considerable amount of pain during their period, so sex may seem like it would add to that. The short answer is: it shouldn't. "Th…
