Posted:Does anyone know how fire eating impacts fake teeth? My teeth next to my two front are fake (crowns? is there a difference? I have no idea...) and I don't want to bust them. Thanks for the info!!!!

Posted:Have you considered asking your dentist the effects of fire on your dental work? I have heard that there are long term effects on real teeth as well, but at the moment, to you, this is this third hand information.

Posted:i don't mind licking the wick but i don't put it in my moth or hold it in my teeth, i hear that the sudden heat differences can crack and degrade the enamel on your teeth. I know a 42yr old fire eater and his teeth are a mess but then again he is a bit of a crusty reprobate type so a lot of his dental state could be down to the lack of hygene to start with...
even chuck norris can't pin you down if your on fire

Posted:As much as I love this particular art, as a fire eater and teacher, I would highly recommend not doing it if you are concerned about the safety of your teeth. Shattered teeth, receding gums, cracks, chips, increase in cavities, loss of taste...never mind all the other copious amounts of health risks.
It's a tough call to make, but I'm sure you will come to the right decision for you.
Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
