September 21 is World Alzheimer’s Day

September 16, 2009

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.
