Fallon showed a photo of a smiling Moore, clearly missing a tooth. She also brought along a hilarious video of her at the dentist’s office.
So how did she lose the 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,” Moore said. “Stress sheared off my front tooth.”
Researchers at Tufts University studied the link between gum disease and stress, and the Academy of General Dentistry has stated, “Stress affects the immune system, which fights against the bacteria that causes periodontal disease, making a person more prone to gum infection.” Looks like we learned something new here. Thanks, Demi!
