Dental TikTok Trends

Hey it’s Dr. Frank at Walden Dental! You want to hear something really creepy? Not only is potentially Wuhan virus coming from Chinese labs, now we have even more ridiculousness of people using a freaking nail file to whittle their teeth.

What kind of nonsense is that? Like we’re not woodchuckers going “ahhh.” That’s wrong, okay? Don’t do that. I don’t know why people are doing this. Apparently there’s something fascination of like wanting your teeth to look shorter. Usually patients are always looking for their teeth to look longer because they’ve worn them down naturally through clenching and grinding. For your information there is a 53% increase of grinding nationwide because we’re so stressed out from Covid. Don’t go faster with a nail file.

This is a bad idea and if you’ve seen it that is the epitome of fake news. There is no benefit. Your body has enamel and it’s really thin but it’s the strongest part of our body. Don’t whittle it away because you saw something weird and theoretically cool? It’s not cool. Just don’t do it. Just because you saw it on TikTok doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. You need fluoride in your mouth and you need to keep yourself safe. Just like your mom told you in first grade, “don’t put things in your mouth that you’re not supposed to.” To find out more Google Walden Dental.

Take care, keep this out of your mouth, and smile.
