How Genetics Could Impact Your Oral health

Could genes impact the overall health of your teeth and gums? Might family history dictate that you require more trips to the dentist? 

Some studies seem to indicate that genetics may have a noticeable impact. These variables may play a particularly pivotal role:

  • If your family has a history of gum disease.
  • Some genes may play a role in developing tooth decay.
  • Those with a genetic predisposition who decline to visit the dentist are at an even higher risk.

“While research is ongoing, there is some evidence to suggest that genes do play a role in your oral health.”
