And it’s terrifying.

Demi Moore made headlines this week when she appeared on The Tonight Show on Monday night.

While appearing on the show to talk about her new film Rough Night, Demi opened up about some personal issues too, never one to shy away from the truth.

'You sent us this photo, which is the most insane thing I've ever seen', began Jimmy, going on to ask the 54-year-old actress, 'how did this happen?'

The photo in question showed Demi missing her front tooth, something that she went on to explain was due to stress.

‘I sheared off my front tooth,’ she explained to the crowd on Monday evening. ‘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.’

She continued: ‘Stress sheared off my front tooth, but in an effort to get ready for you, I wanted to make sure my teeth were in.’

Fear spread across the internet with stressed men and women across the globe fearing for their gnashers, worrying if they too were in danger of losing their pearly whites.

Fortunately, fans were quick to point out that Demi has had dental problems in the past, with the actress opening up to Ellen DeGeneres in 2010 about losing a front tooth. ‘I had a bad bite and knocked my own front tooth out, which basically fell out into my hand,’ she explained. ‘I just thought my warranty was up.’

It looks like stress did play a factor and we should all be wary of grinding our teeth, but with Demi suffering dental problems in the past, it looks like we shouldn’t have to worry about losing our teeth anytime soon.
