Alzheimer’s and Gum Disease – What Do You Know About The Possible Relationship?

book[1]As the list of diseases possibly associated with gum disease grows, it becomes more and more imperative for individuals to focus on insuring that their oral health is not just good, but exceptional. Alzheimer’s disease is among those diseases thought to have a possible link to periodontal disease.

Now, I don’t know how you feel, but the fact that this list of possibly related diseases continues to grow, forces me to realize that our oral health is of primary concern. It is quite likely that healing and maintaining your gum tissue is a crucial part of your chances to stay healthy into advanced age.

There is very little desire on my part to live to be old and have to suffer with a dementia disease such as Alzheimer’s. And that is only one of the many disease suspected to have a link to gingivitis that has moved into one of the more advanced forms of the disease.

Why take chances? With the high incidence of gingival disease, do you really think that mere brushing, flossing and using mouthwash is going to be enough to protect you?

What exactly are the estimates? They range a great deal and no one is able to properly pin it down. Some say 28% and some say 80% of the population suffers from gum disease.

There is a misconception that periodontal disease only afflicts the old. I actually believe that in most cases this disease starts early and progresses silently leaving the victim wondering what is going on by the time the dentist gets around to mentioning it to you. Next: Follow the links below to learn what you can do to stop gingival disease and prevent it from coming back again.
