West Virginia Dentists Find Gene for Sweet Tooth

Researchers at West Virginia University found a gene they believe causes a “sweet tooth.”

The study was conducted over a seven-year period and involved more than 7,000 people. It uncovered a gene that predisposes people that can’t help but eat more sweets. The discovery could enable dentists to prevent many kinds of oral diseases.

Parents of children found to possess the gene can pay extra attention to their child’s teeth brushing habits. These children may also need to visit the dentist more often than children who do not have the gene.

Dentists may be able to develop some kind of salivary test to detect the gene.

Also, this finding could lead the way for more of its kind.

There are genes found in teeth and saliva that may demonstrate the possibility of an oral disease or other diseases later in life.
