Every year on September 21, Alzheimer’s Disease associations across the globe recognize World Alzheimer’s Day. This year’s theme for World Alzheimer’s Day is ‘Diagnosing Dementia: See It Sooner’.
Across the globe scientists are aiming to establish a link between oral health and Alzheimers. For example, the British Dental Health Foundation received a grant to study the links between memory and oral health.
Other studies have examined a possible connection between dental fillings and Alzheimers.
For additional information on the role of oral health in Alzheimer’s disease, Bibby library has compiled a list of articles , indexed in Pubmed, that pertain to dentistry’s role in diagnosing and caring for these patients.
