  • Chewing on large pieces of ice can crack your teeth but small pieces or crushed ice are ok (from my dentist). If you crave ice, I think it's a sign of an iron deficiency. I eat ice a lot and it's usually because I am hot, thirsty and bored.

  • The actual biting of ice can crack your teeth. But crushed ice should be fine.

  • it wears down the enamel in your teeth and make them more vulnerable to cracking

  • I eat ice a lot during pregnancy and my iron has never been low. I think I just crave it.
