You might think that the way you feel about your teeth and gums is tied to your genetic makeup.
But a new study shows that while it’s possible to have genetic differences that affect the way we feel about them, they don’t actually cause the same pain.
The researchers found that the exact same genetic variation affects how we feel and feel about both the inside and out of the teeth, and that there’s little correlation between genetic differences and the pain we experience when we have or don’t have tooth problems.
What we know about pain and health The study is the first to look at how genetic variation plays a role in pain.
Previous studies have looked at how different genes may affect the pain people feel when they experience pain.
Researchers have known that people have different pain-causing genes, and there are also different genes that affect how pain is felt, called pain-related genes.
But until now, we didn’t know how these differences might affect pain, or what kinds of pain we could expect from the pain-associated genes.
This new study is one of the first systematic studies to use genome-wide data to investigate these pain-inducing genes.
To study pain, the researchers gathered data on over 17,000 people in Australia, and found that there was little relationship between genetic variation and pain.
“In other words, it was not as clear as we had thought that there were differences in pain-induced genes between people with different types of dental problems,” said study co-author Peter Pang from the University of Melbourne.
The researchers focused on the pain gene known as p38, which codes for the pain hormone receptor, and it’s a gene that’s important in the regulation of pain. “
We were surprised to find that the same gene that we’d previously found to be associated with pain also appeared to be linked to the same kinds of differences in response to pain.”
The researchers focused on the pain gene known as p38, which codes for the pain hormone receptor, and it’s a gene that’s important in the regulation of pain.
P38 regulates how pain-sensitive cells in the brain communicate with each other, and its presence or absence can influence how well a person feels about pain.
When researchers looked at the genes associated with the pain pain-response gene, they found that those people with the gene were more likely to report being in pain when they had or had not had a toothache.
The scientists also found that people with this gene had more pain-like sensations and worse pain tolerance than people without the gene.
The study found that it wasn’t just people who had a specific pain gene that caused pain, but also that people who were in pain were also more likely than others to report feeling worse pain, especially if they had a genetic variation in the pain genes.
It’s not clear why these differences are present.
Previous research had found that certain pain-signaling genes could influence pain responses.
These studies suggested that a genetic predisposition to a pain gene could affect the sensation of pain that you experience, and this could be important for understanding how to treat pain.
But it’s not entirely clear how pain genes affect pain.
There’s no clear link between the pain caused by one gene and the other, or between the gene and how pain affects the body.
Pang says that while some of the pain genetic variants that the researchers identified could explain the differences between people, it’s unclear whether they’re linked to pain or to how well the body can deal with it.
“It’s possible that the genes that are linked to different pain genes could be used to predict the kinds of genetic variations that cause different kinds of damage to the body,” he said.
“But it’s also possible that these different genes have different effects on pain.”
It’s also not clear how the genetic variations relate to pain-specific pain.
This research also found no relationship between pain-type genes and pain in people who didn’t have any pain at all.
“While we’re interested in looking at genetic variants and their effects on the body, we’re also interested in understanding what the body would do if these variants were actually causing the disease,” said Pang.
He adds that while there’s a lot of research to look into the effects of pain-producing genes on the human body, “this is the only study to really explore how these genetic variants may impact pain, in people with and without dental problems.”
