Do Bad Teeth Run in the Family?

Many of our patients assume that dental issues are genetic. However, like most topics concerning DNA, very few things are that tidy and simple. Relationships between genes, their transcription, and how diseases are expressed are incredibly complex and very rarely distilled by a simple statement.

Check out the video, created by the American Dental Association, for more information about the link between your teeth and your genes.


“Bad teeth don’t necessarily run in the family, but bad habits do. So it’s important to start at a very young age with a very well-balanced diet, brushing, flossing, and regular visits to your dentist.”
