There are lots of things to open during Christmas: presents, packets of food, and, dare we mention them, bottles! Despite the fact that there are a host of perfectly good tools that could make this easy, some may be tempted, especially when in a rush, to use what we have on us at the moment: our teeth!
This choice opens up a world of potential problems. As with biting coins in puddings, opening items using your teeth can cause substantial chipping, cracking or breaking of the tooth, crown or filling. Any one of these outcomes has the potential to be very painful, and, not to mention, costly, to repair.
Please take the extra few seconds to get the bottle opener or scissors and open items properly. And please, don’t ever use your teeth as tools. You will thank us later!
