The article reviews the literature on the genetic aspects of various disorders affecting the oral cavity and highlights the influence of genetics on diseases encountered in routine practice. Understanding the mechanism of a disease at genetic level will help an oral health professional in early intervention and would also help to explain a patient why persons with same environmental and behavioral (oral habits, diet) risks are relatively more predisposed to a certain disease.
