The Columbus Dispatch: Teeth are often used to pop a bottle top or cut a thread, but it’s harmful for teeth. “They’re doing this because it’s available, it’s always there,” said Sorin Teich, associate professor in the School of Dental Medicine. “They get used to that, and it works for them. It almost becomes something that’s second nature.”
