Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

Q: Mum loves sweets and so do I. We both have crook teeth. Is this a fam­ily pre­dis­po­si­tion?

A: Nearly ev­ery­thing seems to be in­her­ited from par­ents or grand­par­ents. What­ever is in the fam­ily tree, it is in­evitable some genes will track down to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. Sweets are usu­ally sticky and can lead to tooth de­cay.
