Can we inherit poor dental health?

Our genes affect almost everything about us, including dental health. -But just how much of dental issues can we inherit?

Key takeaways:

– Gene variations of the gene beta defensin 1 (DEFB1) are linked to a higher risk in gum disease and cavities.

– We inherit the shape and size of our parents’ teeth, meaning we can inherit issues like crowded and crooked teeth.

– Tight and over-crowded teeth are hard to clean, thus more prone to bacteria and infections.

Ensure to brush teeth regularly and see the dentist for treatment and checkups.
