: is it ssafe to bite fingernails?

Nail biting is a nervous tic habit that not only results in the deterioration of the nail plate, but can result in bacterial, fungal or yeast infections. There are 3 basic classes of nail biters: the nibbler, the biter and the cannible. The cannible bites off any piece of nail plate or surrounding skin that they can sink their teeth into, and the nail plate becomes permanently scarred and damaged. So, is it safe? Depends on if you swallow what you bite off!
