Am I Born With Bad Teeth?


“I just have bad teeth… my mother had bad teeth… my mother’s mother had bad teeth… and my grandma’s mother had bad teeth. So I’ve always been doomed to have bad teeth. I’ll probably have to wear dentures by age 50, just like my mom!”

Alicia had given up on her smile years ago when her family put the lie in her head that she was born with bad teeth because “that’s just how it goes in our family.”

This limiting mindset made it impossible for Alicia to take control of her dental health, adopting the victim mentality that she was born with bad genetics and that there was nothing she could do about it.

But this lie couldn’t be further from the truth! 

How to Fix Bad Teeth

Yes, your genetics can make you more prone to getting cavities. But the truth is, you don’t have to let your genetics rule your destiny. You just need to properly take care of your smile and your overall health, and let go of the silly excuse that “I’m just born this way.” 

Our teeth are in a constant process of demineralization, and remineralization is happening to our teeth all day. Cavity prevention via demineralization, the natural repair process of teeth) is the first line of defense against tooth decay. This means eating the proper diet to support remineralization, taking any necessary supplements to improve deficient dental health, and being informed about current research and best practices for optimal dental health.

The Power is in Your Hands

Your smile greatly depends on how you’re treating it. Think about it. If you never get an oil change for your car, do you expect it to run smoothly? No! It’s going to tank out on you!

The same goes for your smile. If you’re constantly eating processed junk food (or “fake food,” as we like to call it) and not brushing or flossing adequately, of course, you’re probably going to have bad teeth. 

And yes, there are certain conditions that put you at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease. But there are ways to overcome these obstacles and have a healthy smile. 

That’s what we’re here for, friend!

Come see us so we can provide you with the best-individualized treatment for your specific needs to restore your smile and your confidence. 

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Smile

So before labeling yourself as having “bad” teeth, remember that the power is in your hands. You need to believe that you can live free from dental disease and smile with confidence.

When Alicia overcame the limiting belief that was keeping her stuck, she was able to take control of her dental destiny and started making small changes, such as flossing daily, that added up to big improvements. She wasn’t afraid of smiling anymore. She began holding her head up a little higher. Alicia is now free from the bondage of a mouth (and life) full of dental problems that weighed her down and robbed her confidence. These small but powerful changes lead to an upward spiral in her life. Alicia began eating better and exercising regularly. By taking care of herself, she showed herself that she mattered. And that she’s worth it.

And so are you, my friend.
