I am fourteen years old and I am wanting to know if having bad teeth and gums are an inherited trait? Both my parents and even my grand parents have bad teeth. I had lots of issues with my baby teeth. I had at least a dozen cavities that had to be filled when I had my baby teeth.
My Adult teeth seem to be okay for now but I am worried latter on in life I am going to have bad teeth. I do not what to have to go to the dentist all the time like my parents. They go to the dentist at least four to five times a year. What is the chance that I will have jacked up teeth because my parents do?
