Is Bad Oral Health Inherited?

While some traits are genetic, others fall on the nurture side of the spectrum. Talk to your professionals in family dentistry in Alpharetta and check out this video to find out if bad oral health can be inherited.

When it comes to your oral health, your actual genetics might not have much to do with it. However, the people you grew up with will influence your habits, which can ultimately impact your oral health. Parents who do not get their kids started on dental hygiene early in life might notice that their children grow up with tooth decay. Kids should start brushing their teeth twice a day at a young age. They should also be flossing every day and visiting the dentist for routine checkups.
