On the Tonight Show recently actress Demi Moore admitted to having lost teeth due to chronic stress.   Jimmy Fallon, mentioned how beautiful she is as a prelude to showing a photo she’d sent earlier with no front teeth.  She jokily said, "I'd love to say it was skateboarding or something really kind of cool, but I think it's something that's important to share because I think it's literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in in America, which is stress. Stress sheared off my front tooth. But, in an effort to get ready for you, I wanted to make sure my teeth were in."

Which brings up the question – Does stress effect your teeth?

It’s a point of fact that people can clench and grind their teeth to a degree in which teeth are damaged.  And yes, chronic, consistent stress can have an impact on a person’s health including their teeth. 

Do you think you stress level has affected your teeth?
