Tooth Loss – it can be down to stress, ask Demi Moore!

28th June 2017

Andrea Downey at The Sun newspaper recently published a story about high profile tooth loss. Actress Demi Moore went on late night US television and showed a less than flattering photo of her gaps.

She told host Jimmy Fallon that stress contributed to two of her teeth shearing off. Andrea telephoned me and we discussed the impact of stress on health in general and your teeth in particular.

We discussed exactly how this can occur and preventative measures to help, when you are stressed.

It is good to get these conversations in the public domain. Anything that helps to improve the nation’s oral healthcare, is most welcome.
