Are you aware of any genetic predispositions for oral health risks that exist? As genetics place a heavy role in numerous factors throughout your life, they can even play a role in your likelihood to contract a disease or ailment. Fortunately, keeping your mouth clean by following effective oral health hygiene routines can prevent any genetic predispositions you may have from taking hold.

Gum disease disorder is also commonly linked to genetics. It may seem that if you are genetically predisposed to this ailment, there’s very little you can do. However, visit your dentist for effective treatment plans and planning to ensure gum disease will not destroy your life.

Cavities and sleep apnea also carry genetic markers that increase your risk for those irregularities within your oral health. Luckily, cavity prevention and sleep apnea avoidance plans can be implemented to ensure they do not arise within your mouth. Furthermore, always remember to brush and floss daily and visit your dentist for professional cleanings and routine checkups as needed.
