Does Bad Teeth Run in Your Family? A Fairbanks Dentist Offers Advice, Fairbanks North Star, Alaska

At Alaska Dental Arts North Pole, their experienced family dentist has helped hundreds of local residents achieve excellent oral health at affordable prices. Many of their patients are often concerned with genetic issues, like crooked teeth or being prone to cavities. While bad teeth can run in some families, practicing great oral hygiene will help combat the problem. 

If your family is prone to bad teeth, the dentist suggests these three tips to maintain a healthy mouth:

  • Routine Dentist Visits: It’s important to see your dentist regularly, especially if your family is prone to dental issues. Make sure to schedule routine checkups with your dentist at least twice a year. It may be helpful to go to a family dentist office like Alaska Dental Arts North Pole so that the dentist can see how you progress through your lifetime along with your other family members. If you do have crooked teeth as a result of genetics, your dentist can also suggest dental services or orthodontics to give you your dream smile.
  • Practice Excellent Oral Care: Everyone should be brushing and flossing at least twice a day. If you know your teeth are sensitive or you’re prone to dental issues, take this to heart and stay diligent with your mouth cleaning routine. Consider brushing and flossing after your afternoon meals as well.
  • DentistAvoid Sugar: When people refer to having ‘bad teeth,’ often times they mean they are prone to cavities and tooth decay. If this is the case in your family, be sure to avoid sugary and sticky desserts as much as possible. Avoiding sugar coupled with a great brushing and flossing regimen should help your teeth stay healthy.
