What non-behavioural biological factors affect a person's dental / oral health?

What non-behavioural biological factors affect a person's dental / oral health?

QPart1 > Seeking answers RE lifetime 1st AGGRESSIVELY ACUTE dental flareup of 2+ molars (no prior pockets to 3&9+mm pockets/abscesses, opposite molars/sides of mouth) following replacement of multiple composite fillings. Prior Perfect health no meds.

Assume no medical contributing factor. If your own dentist can't supply you with a reasonable rationale, I recommend you see a Periodontist who can compare past x-rays to solve the mystery. ...Read more
