Dental Benefit – Keratins are important in tooth enamel structure

Monday, Nov. 29th 2021 6:07 AM

Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide. According to studies, genetics may be a factor in cavity formation.   A new study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation reveals that keratins, proteins associated with strong hair, are important for tooth enamel integrity.  Maria Morasso and colleagues at the National Institutes of Health found that individuals with mutations in hair keratin genes are prone to cavities.  Tooth enamel from individuals with keratin mutations had abnormal structure that resulted in weakness.  The results from this study reveal a link between hair disorders and cavity formation.
