Is There a Link Between Oral Health and Alzheimer's?

Alzheimer’s care is comprehensive and focuses on the whole body and mind. As you will learn in this video, Alzheimer’s care involves staying attuned to a resident’s oral health care needs.

Alzheimer’s care is concerned with individuals’ oral hygiene because experts have recently identified a link between poor oral health and developing Alzheimer’s later in life. As an Alzheimer’s assisted living center knows, periodontal disease and tooth decay are linked to a bacteria found in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. Continuous care should therefore be provided for both oral health needs and dementia symptoms.
