teeth health smile dentistAnyone is at risk of dental cavities if they eat too much sugar, neglect to clean their teeth and fail to attend regular dentist check ups. However, did you know that certain groups of people are more prone to developing dental cavities? This article looks into five reasons some people are at a greater risk of cavities.
Key takeaways
– People receiving long-term medication, such as cancer patients, often have weakened tooth enamel.
– Some people are genetically pre-disposed to having problematic teeth. People born with microdontia, for example, have smaller teeth than the majority of the population, which are very tricky to keep adequately clean.
– People suffering from eating disorders, such as bulimia, are also more likely to have problems with cavities.
However, even if you fall into one of these categories, all is not lost.
Seeing your dentist regularly helps rectify the problem, so you can have a smile to be proud of.
