President Eisenhower and His Bruxing Habit

President Eisenhower (Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II and President from 1953-1956) had a teeth problem! He was a bruxer – a serious grinder of his teeth. This leads to tooth breakage and loose teeth. In the President’s case, he broke his front tooth and had a crown placed. It subsequently fell out and was recemented. Here is a photo of Eisenhower with the tooth stub, missing crown. The second photo is more typical of his published photos – notice how he doesn’t show his teeth!
