Your whole life, you’ve probably heard things like:“Chewing ice can break your teeth.”“Don’t chew ice, it will damage your dental work.”“If you chew ice, it means you’re anemic.”It turns out there’s some truth behind each of these statements, even if chewing ice doesn’t result in injury 100% of the time. But if it’s a habit you tend to do several times a week, you need to take note. Over time, you may wind up with dental (or medical) bills that could have otherwise been avoided.
