Do you have the most common chronic health problem in the world? If so, you might be able to blame your genes. Tooth decay knows no social or economic boundaries, but it appears that some people may be more prone to developing it than others. While some people have perfect smiles despite eating candy throughout the day and forgetting to floss, others maintain strict oral hygiene and get cavities anyway. It isn’t fair, but it can be explained. Genetic dentistry is in its infancy, but researchers have found five clear links between tooth decay and genetics.
Genetics and Teeth: How They’re Related
If your family members seem to spend more time in the dentist’s chair than anyone else you know, don’t give up hope. The other 40 percent of tooth decay is related to hygiene and behaviors, and those are elements you can control. Brush and floss regularly, see your dentist often, don’t smoke, and avoid sugary drinks and snacks.
