Genetic factors could make gingivitis more likely – leading to a need for cosmetic dentistry solutions such as tooth implants.Tooth loss and the associated need for tooth implants and cosmetic dentistry may be predicted by genetic factors, research has revealed. teeth implants


Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill discovered that a large proportion of an individual’s genetic code plays a part in whether they are likely to develop gingivitis.

This is associated with reddened, sensitive and bleeding gums, as well as raising the likelihood that teeth will fall out – which could lead individuals to seek cosmetic dentistry solutions such as tooth implants.

Scientists also found that the complexity of the causing factors behind the condition could mean it is difficult to prevent its development or to reverse its effects.

British Dental Health Foundation chief executive Dr Nigel Carter comments: “Gum disease affects most people at some point in their lives, so there is no excuse for ignoring good dental hygiene.”

Dr Steven Offenbacher, lead author of the study for the university, adds that “thousands of individual genes” must be considered in order to determine what is occurring at the onset of gingivitis.
