Is it possible to inherit crooked and over-crowded teeth?

People with crooked and over-crowded teeth usually wonder if the problem is hereditary. Yes, we inherit the shape and size of our jaws and teeth from our parents.

Key takeaways:

– Although we all have our unique smiles, we inherit a lot of dental features from our parents.
– We don’t inherit poor oral health, even if our parents have cavities and such. Our dental health is our responsibility.
– When children prolong thumb-sucking or breathe through the mouth, they risk damaging the jaw.
Observe proper oral hygiene and see the dentist for treatment.
