It’s been known for years that poor dental health increases a person’s risk for heart disease. In the recent past, poor dental health has been mentioned as a possible risk for Alzheimer’s disease, as well. Now, a large and lengthy study has confirmed a probable correlation between poor dental hygiene and dementia.The results of this study conducted by researchers at the University of California have shown that people who brush their teeth less than once a day were up to 65 percent more likely to develop dementia than those who brush daily. The study, led by Annlia Paganini-Hill and published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, followed nearly 5,500 elderly people over an 18 year period.
