If you have bad teeth, some part of your oral health may be hereditary but there is no doubt that you may be able to improve your oral health with better care and modern dentistry.

Now, with the help of your dentist you can, more than likely, improve your oral health even if  there are signs of a history of bad teeth in your family.

Why Your Dentist Needs Your Family Health History

Family health history is important to your dentist because there are other hereditary health problems that can affect the health of your teeth.  Oral health problems may not simply be a product of lack of good oral care which is, of course, important for maintaining healthy teeth.

People who have a family history of diabetes, heart disease, coronary heart disease, kidney disease, osteoporosis and serious immune deficiency diseases may fall victim to the resulting oral health problems.  Your dentist will want to know about this family health history for clear signs of what may be signs of your immediate oral health problem.

The disease itself can be responsible for affecting the gums and weakening teeth against cavities, but the medications to aid in disease control may have an equally devastating effect on your oral health.
