Preventing periodontitis thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Plaque and tartar can cause the gums to become inflamed. This is known as gingivitis. If the inflammation spreads to surrounding tissue, such as the jaw bone, we call this periodontitis. This inflammation can cause the jaw bone to disintegrate, resulting in teeth becoming loose or even falling out. Hereditary predisposition plays a role in this disease, but poor oral hygiene and smoking are also risk factors.

Periodontitis and heredity

The risk of periodontitis is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of periodontitis.
