I have a bad habit of chewing pens. I mostly do it when I'm thinking... please don't say chew gum b/c I hate gum. I have braces and I've broken 3 already from it. Ideas?
Chewing pencils, pens and other hard objects:
Your teeth were meant to chew food, not writing utensils. Pencils, pens and other things that do not belong in your mouth can fracture teeth, leading to otherwise unnecessary dental repairs. Besides, you do not know where these items have been, so why would you put them in your mouth? If you feel the need to chew, stick to sugarless gum.
Take care !!
um, ihave braces too. and I used to have that same bad habit but I decided to try to focus my attention on something else and it worked. not trying to be rude, but, why not try daydreaming or staring at boys. thats what I do to keep my attention from chewing on pens and im not trying to be rude. its just a suggestion. xoxoTina
