Can Stress Really Make Teeth Fall Out?

If you follow pop culture at all or watch late night television, you may have caught a headline about Demi Moore losing two of her front teeth due to stress.

There has been some research linking stress to dental problems but these studies were short term rather than longitudinal.  But even though stress may not be a direct cause of dental problems, it could still contribute to dental issues in some capacity.
