Odontophobia (from Greek odonto, "teeth") is the fear of teeth. The fear is often caused by shedding one's teeth during the childhood. People suffering this phobia would feel worry that teeth can break while chewing a food, which is quite painful. People suffering this phobia would only eat foods that are soft and not chewy, while more severe sufferers would only consume liquids.
