Are Genetics to Blame for Bad Teeth?

Genetics and Good Teeth

Without question, genetics play a significant role in the people we ultimately grow to be. Things such as facial contour, height, and hair color are all determined in large part by our hereditary makeup. Many have wondered whether or not the condition of our teeth is also shaped by genetic factors. Though scientists have not yet reached consensus on this question, inquiries on the part of dentists and patients alike persist.

The concept of bad teeth is a rather broad one, encompassing a variety of definitions. Teeth may be considered by some to be bad if they are poorly aligned, misshapen, or discolored. Missing or lost teeth (hypodontia and oligodontia) can be the result of genetic factors or mutations. Genetic mutations that have combined with environmental factors such as viruses or the use of medications can also result in malformed or even missing teeth.

While genes play a role in malformed teeth, when it comes to stained teeth, environmental influences are much more relevant. Smoking, poor diet, drug use, and a failure to follow proper dental care protocols can all lead to discoloration of the teeth. Therefore, by heeding some key advice about how to take good care of your teeth and gums, you have the ability to control a great deal in terms of your overall oral health.

Brushing no less than twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and routine visits to local dentists are indispensable to proper dental care. The use of mouthwash and toothpaste products is also vital to maintaining strong teeth and gums. A nutrient-rich diet that contains only limited amounts of sugar can go a long way toward preventing excessive buildup of bacteria and plaque that lead to decay. Avoiding tobacco products and drugs will help mitigate tartar on teeth, keeping them as white as possible.

Although genetic factors can create an environment where tooth problems can occur, there are numerous ways skilled, affordable dentists can help you have healthy teeth.
