    The stress of crowding and exposure to inescapable electric shock increased both the incidence and the severity of dental caries in rats housed in a conventional animal facility. At the end of the 56-day trial period, stressed rats had a significant increase in both incidence and severity of dental caries in comparison to their controls.

    Yea so stop stressing - you aren't doing your mouth any good!

    (Be aware I cut and pasted the interesting parts, there was more to this study)
