If you’re like most American families, you’ll be gathering together this season with your loved ones. You’ll be sharing food, giving gifts, playing games, and bickering. You might also compare how some relatives are very alike while others are very different. You might even want to blame your family for your bad dental genes. After all, you can blame them for just about everything else, right?

As explained in this ADA video, you’ll probably need to reconsider your blame. While there are some genetic factors to things like risk of gum infection, most of your oral health concerns are due to your own bad habits.
