Is There a Link Between Gum Disease and Alzheimer’s?

In honor of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, we wanted to bring to light the connection between gum disease and Alzheimer’s. In fact, studies have recently discovered that the bacteria that cause gingivitis, a more advanced form of gum disease, was found inside of the brain of 90% of Alzheimer’s patient samples. 

We’re sharing a video released by CBS News that reviews their findings. What this shows is how important it is to prioritize your oral health at every stage in your life. If you do show signs of gum infection, we can treat it with our deep cleaning procedure.
