Alzheimer’s Disease Linked to Oral Health!
(URGENT! Important Information!)
Alzheimer’s and dementia are horrible diseases that affect a large part of our aging population. Research is continuing to look for the cause, and hopefully a cure. The most current research shows a link between Alzheimer’s and dental health…specifically Spirochetes. Spirochetes are a class of bacteria that are named for their spiral shape.
Bacteria (including Spirochetes) are the cause of gum disease and are often introduced to the body and the blood stream through the mouth.
Recent pathological findings show Spirochetes in the brains of 90% of Alzheimer’s patients. (Read more in the link below.) That may be the “smoking gun for Alzheimer’s,” but it also gives us an opportunity to work toward prevention early-on through dental health.
Visiting your dentist and dental hygienist regularly AND seeing a dentist who uses multi-faceted protocols to address and help you eliminate gum disease (when it occurs) is very important.
(Gum disease is easily detected at home when you see red, swollen, or bleeding gums when brushing or flossing. If you or someone you know has these symptoms, WE CAN HELP. Please call. )
