    I do the same thing. This reminds me of a funny thing when I wanted to go fishing with my brothers, I had 9 of them. I was real good at cutting their fishing line with my teeth as they were really sharp. Strange, right! At least I goto fish.

    I have cut thread with my sharp regular teeth all my life, and then got veneers and it is so hard to break the habit, but my veneers won't cut thread to save my life.

    Oh gosh! I hold pins between my lips sometimes. Try to remember to wear the wrist pin cushion when I'm pinning. Actually getting spoiled to the glue baste pen...so not using regular pins as much. Its not as damaging when you put the glue pen in your mouth :wink:

    I felt like you were talking to me. My dentist told me the same thing. I have to wear a night guard at night to keep me from clenching and grinding my teeth. Maybe, I need to wear it while sewing!

    My home ec teacher always told us we'd fail the current project... OUCH!

    i tend to hold them with my teeth too. i used to always bite the thread to cut it. my hygienist told me she could tell becuse the thread was making a groove in my front teeth. stopped doing that but sometimes i can't resist the feel of the pin between my teeth.

    I used to do that most of the time, especially when I started sewing (clothing). But the first time I was sewing with my grandchildren, I stopped just before I stuck a pin in my mouth. Didn't want to teach them a bad and dangerous habit.

    I dont put pins in my mouth anymore as my front teeth are gone. I lost my bridge a few weeks ago (it didnt fit anyway) so I use the magnet pin cup.

    WOW! Never knew this. I hold pins in my mouth all the time as did my mother! It seems easier than pulling them from a cushion. Thanks for the info.

    Yes!! I actually had one of my front lower teeth to chip off from the years of biting off my thread with my teeth!! I stopped doing that, too!! And, this was when I was in my late 30's!!

    Ditto!! It costs less to quit putting pins in your mouth than to get a crown -- trust me!!

    Gosh, I am guilty of putting a couple (not more than 2 or 3 when I am sewing and they get in the way (as did my Mom). Amy, when she was little, used to say Mommy, you are going to swallow that - old habits are hard to break, aren't they? Thanks for the info - will try to stop!!

    When I was in high school, a girl in home ec. sucked a needle down her throat. Luckily it went straight through.

    My daughter, at less than a year, picked a pin up off the floor and before I could get to her, she swallowed it. Took her to ER and they took an X-ray. Thankfully it was a big headed pin and it went head first, not point first. Just had to wait for it to pass through. That was fun. I saved the pin and put it in her baby book.

    I didn't realize that I did it until I saw my granddaughter with a pin in her mouth.

    Re: the breast implants, I really got a big chuckle out of that. Feels good to get a good laugh once in awhile.

    I don't have time to read all the replies, if someone has already mentioned it I apologize, but I don't put anything in my mouth that might have originated in China. It seems lead is in everything being imported from China including paint, toothpaste, toys, sewing items, blinds and so forth. Don't risk putting a pin loaded with lead into your Mouth!
