Sara Guidry is a worried mother that took to Facebook for the purpose of raising awareness about the nail biting-related dangers. With her friends she shared the story about her son, Kale, who had been biting his nails for a long time.
She began to notice something was off when odd white materials appeared in her son’s gums. After pulling them out with the help of some tweezers, she discovered that they were in fact nails embedded into his pallet!
According to Sara, Kale must have been playing with his nails and pushed them upwards. She was surprised to recover 31 nail fragments from her son’s gums.
(For licensing or usage, contact firstname.lastname@example.org)Kale has always kept us on our toes. Looking in Kale's mouth I see something white in his gums. I get a tweezer and pull it. It looked like a finger nail. I continued to pull 4 more out. I then search his mouth and find another area. I pulled around 27 out of the second spot. YES 27! The dentist has never seen anything like this. We figured out that Kale bites his nails and plays with them in his mouth. He pushes them up towards his pallet. The nail penetrates the skin and goes into a pocket between the baby teeth and permanent teeth. Don't let your children bite their nails! If you can handle the disgust check out the video
