“Hi, can you please ask your fans this question? When I was younger I felt like I was constantly at the dentist having fillings and I know I have more than most with my chalky teeth – my question is, are chalky teeth passed down to kids? I have a toddler and a baby and am wondering if they will have the same troubles I had. thanks”

Ask your question

  • Did your parents, grandparents of siblings also have chalky teeth? The answer to this should indicate the risks of it being inherited



  • If you have plenty of calcium you have to have Vitamin D for your body to absorb it. I can’t see where anybody has mentioned that.
    Also I was not aware that your teeth and gums should be brushed in a circular motion. Just brushing backwards and forwards is abrasive and you sometimes don’t brush your gums enough to keep them healthy either. Changing definitely improved the condition of my teeth and gums.
    My teeth were also probably damaged from having so many antibiotics as I had a lot of tonsilitis until the ENT Specialist finally agreed to remove my tonsils. Sometimes they were so swollen I could barely swallow.



  • I really don’t think so



  • No I don’t think so.



  • No I don’t think so. Just ensure lots of calcium in their diets.



  • they are not hereditary, goodluck



  • My husband has chalky teeth, the only one in his family and our kids do not have any problems with their teeth.



  • My cousin had them but no other other members that we know of ever did. Did you find out?



  • A quick check up with the dentist should clear it up :)



  • did you end up finding out?



  • Not necessarily as they may take after their dad.



  • I’ve never heard of chalky teeth. Hope you found the answer you were looking for.



  • Did you find out if it was hereditary?



  • My mum had chalky teeth and had them all removed at a very early age. My sister and I have not had any such problems.



  • I am sure it can be hereditary, both my aunties had it-They had false teeth at an early age.
