Are you losing your teeth to stress? Demi Moore is losing them too!


As we have talked before, stress can affect your teeth in horrible ways. Just some days ago we also found out a big example of this issue when Demi Moore came forward to explain her dental problems on TV:

“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 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”

What’s the reason behind this?? Well, stress and anxiety have a great effect on our teeth and it’s called daytime bruxism. This condition means that people will grind or clench their teeth when they are worried. Even with molars withstanding between 171-275 pounds per inch, the constant pressure through out the day means the structure of the outer-layer of the  teeth (enamel) can be compromised and fissure or even be broken. Once you start losing teeth because of bruxism and it’s not properly addressed by a dentist, it’s very likely that the contiguous teeth will be also affected because the remaining pressure will fall on them. This is a domino effect with your teeth! There are many people who suffer from this condition and end up with almost no teeth. For this reason, All-on-4 can be the solution you are looking for to restore the teeth you have lost.

When you come to our dental clinic in Cancun, Doctor German Arzate will review your dental history with you and analyse all the problems you had to ensure All-on-4 dental implants the right treatment for you. In any case, we applaud Demi Moore for coming forward and shed some light on this important matter.
