Is it dangerous to bite your nails?

Most people who bite their nails don’t develop long-term damage, but that doesn’t mean the bad habit is as harmless as you might think. In this article, your nail supply expert Maryton will explain to you the dangers of nail biting.

The following are the immediate consequences of nail biting:

  • Pain in nails and surrounding skin.
  • Abnormal nail shape. Be aware that onychophagia can damage the nail matrix and permanently deform them.
  • Nail plate infection.
  • Diseases due to the transmission of bacteria and viruses from your fingers to your face and mouth.
  • Dental issues like chipping, misalignment, and tooth resorption.
  • Increased risk of stomach and intestinal infections due to risk of swallowing bitten nails.

Beyond the health risks mentioned above, it will be complicated to perform a manicure or put your varnish on bitten nails. In order to have healthy nails, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure set to care for your nails!
