Could Oral Inflammation Impact Long-Term Cognition?

It now seems that the health of our teeth and gums can have an impact upon our long-term cognitive abilities. This is because mouth bacteria can travel in the bloodstream. What has research found and why should you be sure to regularly visit your dentist?

–  Oral bacteria seems to bypass the blood-brain barrier.

–  As a result, they could lead to irreversible conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

–  Chronic inflammation is thought to be one of the most common factors.

“The same bacteria that are involved in the inflammation of the gums that is characteristic of gum disease can end up in your brain.”
