    Chrissy Teigen Lost A Tooth In A Fruit Roll-Up, And It's The Stuff Of Nightmares

    It's a "nope" from me, dawg.

    Chrissy Teigen had an exciting day yesterday, as she and John Legend traveled to Washington, DC, for President Biden's inauguration. John performed a song, and Chrissy received a follow from the official @POTUS Twitter account, after being blocked by Trump for years.

    But I'm not here to talk about any of that stuff. I'm here to talk about one absolutely horrifying thing that happened to Chrissy in DC yesterday: She lost a tooth while eating a Fruit Roll-Up.

    In a video shared to Twitter and Instagram captioned "Welp," Chrissy showed off the damage:

    "I just lost my tooth in a Fruit Roll-Up," she says, and then holds up the tooth, wedged inside a sticky wad of red Fruit Roll-Up.

    Now, perhaps you're reading this and you're like, "Who cares?" But you have to understand that for a certain subset of people — self very much included — losing teeth like this is a LITERAL WORST NIGHTMARE:

    @chrissyteigen This is seriously a recurring nightmare of mine 😳

    Seriously, it's a very common nightmare to have!

    @chrissyteigen This is one of my fears, I legit have nightmare about waking up with my teeth falling out!

    @SashaPoint7 @chrissyteigen Literally had a nightmare last week that half by bottom teeth fell out

    @SashaPoint7 @chrissyteigen It’s a common and horrifying nightmare. Isn’t that so weird? As a species we’re so terrified of teeth all just falling out. We all carry that deep fear with us lol

    And if you're prone to dreams about losing teeth, Chrissy's story is a big, fat NOPE:

    @SashaPoint7 @chrissyteigen Me too. Teeth getting really loose and falling out/ being pulls out by a soft candy

    @Cristinanana @SashaPoint7 @chrissyteigen I've has this nightmare several times in my life and I always wake up in a cold sweat from it. 😰

    @SashaPoint7 @chrissyteigen Same. She’s so calm, I’d be freaking out.

    Chrissy later revealed that that the tooth she lost was a cap, not a real tooth with a root:

    Cap :( but i loved him like he was a real tooth https://t.co/rN1tgzPKbZ

    Twitter: @chrissyteigen

    But that didn't do much do calm people's anxieties:

    @chrissyteigen Now I'm feeling super paranoid about ever losing the veneer on one of my front top teeth. I just stopped having bizarre dreams about the temporary coming off 😪

    People are now hopping into Chrissy's replies to share their own stories of losing teeth — and frankly, I want to barf:

    @timmy_tiff2018 @chrissyteigen I ate half of a molar once with a dumpling. I will never forgive myself.

    Twitter: @jasminnnmarie

    @chrissyteigen I ate a crown eating a milk dud during Halloween and thought the candy had been poisoned

    Twitter: @Taaaayloooooor

    @chrissyteigen I once kissed someone and he said “Oh - what happened “? And I realized my front tooth crown was gone - and in his mouth ! So embarrassing!

    @chrissyteigen Last time I did that with my implant, I not only lost it, but bit it to smithereens. Gah! Mine was a gummy vitamin.

    Twitter: @BookWonk

    @jasminnnmarie @timmy_tiff2018 @chrissyteigen Lmfaoooo my brother once ate his tooth with rice. Then proceeded to ask my mom why the rice was so crunchy 🥴

    Good luck at the dentist, Chrissy. I need to go lie down.
