Gum disease and Alzheimer’s: is there a link?

A recent study has shown that people who have had chronic periodontitis (gum disease) for over ten years are at 70% higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people without gum disease.

Key takeaways:

– Periodontitis can be prevented by a diligent daily dental care routine, including brushing teeth thoroughly – and flossing daily.

– Bleeding gums is a sign of gum disease.

– See your dentist twice a year for tooth cleanings and exams.
