The Reason Why Demi Moore is Missing Two Front Teeth

By  | 

During her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, actress Demi Moore explains a photograph she’d recently sent the host. The picture shows Moore missing a front tooth. She reveals that her two front teeth are actually missing.

 

 

The reason Moore lost her two front teeth:

“I sheared off my front teeth. 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 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.”

 

The actress also explained that she didn’t lose both at the same time.

 

“They happened a year apart, but the fact remains that I sheared off both my front teeth. Thank God for modern dentistry. Without it, I wouldn’t be smiling on the red carpet.”

 

 

Negative Effects of Stress

Stress can definitely cause serious health problems and t has been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, among others.

 

Now, with regards the effect of stress on your teeth, the Research from the American Academy of Periodontology found a strong relationship between stress and periodontal diseases. These serious gum diseases include inflammatory mouth conditions like gingivitis..

 

Another way that stress can affect your teeth is through bruxism, or what is commonly known as teeth grinding. In turn, the bad habit of bruxism can also cause tooth loss. Teeth grinding usually occur during sleep and, according to the American Sleep Association, the condition affects 10% of adults. However, those with a family history of the disorder have risks of up to 50%.

 

 

After losing her two front teeth, the 54-year old beauty is able to get some solid replacements and, reportedly, already has her stress under control too. If stress and teeth problems can happen to celebrities who can avail of costly treatments, there’s all the more reason to be extra careful with our teeth and stress levels.
