"True, pressure situations can harm your teeth, "he asserts, "gnashing your teeth at night and squeezing your jaw together is harmful to your teeth."

This causes splintered tooth edges, tooth loosening, and fractures. Also, stressing constantly affects your immune system giving the bacteria in your mouth an easy time in causing havoc to your dentals. Dangerous bacteria cause tooth and gum problems like caries, periodontitis and if untreated they inevitably lead to teeth loss.

Most people neglect their daily oral cleaning and the regular preventative habits during stressful situations, a time when they should really be sensitive to their hygiene. International actress Demi Moore confessed to having lost her front teeth due to stress.

How to take care of your teeth

Dr. Diana Svoboda says that if the damage has already been done then dental treatment is required to provide professional care. One can opt for Professional tooth cleaning twice a year to keep teeth naturally white and healthy.

The color of teeth darkens with age because of acids found in the foods we eat dissolve minerals from teeth making them thinner and the bone visible.

Dr. Svoboda says, "If you like to eat fruit, you should wait half an hour after brushing your teeth. The acid contained in the fruits can attack the molten tooth and lead to discolouration. After about 30 minutes, these acids have neutralized and the teeth can be cleaned without any problems. "
