    Basically, you know those water bottles with the lids where you open it by pulling with your teeth?

    Well, if you use them long enough, is it possible that your teeth might start growing outwards?

    Dunno if that makes sense.

    Nice one.

    Yes just like if you press your tongue against the back of your teeth often then your teeth grow outwards.

    i don't know the ins and outs but reckon you'd have to do it A LOT before there was even a slight change

    I doubt it would really make any difference at all unless you spend your life doing it. If you're worried you can always use your fingers

    Thats the problem, the things too stiff to open with fingers.

    Guess I'll just get a new water bottle :tsr2:

    Just imagine how the guy in the factory that makes them feels - he would have to test them all the time to make sure they work...

    Having spent gross amounts of money getting my teeth beautifully straight and hollywood-esque - anything involving my mouth and teeth (ie possibly unstraightening them, not normal stuff :rolleyes: ) worries me.

    I don't think it does, but I try the bottle before I buy! One of my friends opens bottle tops with her teeth, personally, I find that revolting!!

    If you upset the bouncer at your local nightclub then I heard that can actually make your teeth go inwards (as well as make your lip bleed).

    Hope that helps.

    Well they say kids who have dummies for longer than 2 years tend to need braces because their teeth go inwards or something, I doubt it could happen with a water bottle though.

    Like others have said, you'd need to be doing it for prolonged periods. And I don't just mean opening a few bottles per day with your teeth, I'm talking about doing it almost permanently.

    Many people who suck their thumbs end up with teeth protuding slightly, but you have to remember that people generally suck their thumbs for long periods of time in a row, whereas the action of opening a bottle is not ongoing.

    It depends obviously on the nature of your teeth and gums- some people have teeth which are more likely to be affected by force beign applied on them- like when you just have your brace taken off, your teeth are very easily influenced by the slightest of forces, hence your having to wear a retainer to keep them in the right position.
