“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart” Helen Keller.

Of course, everyone in this world has known someone who has been impacted by Alzheimer’s. A recent very large study performed by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics suggests that plagues of beta amyloid protein, a major hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease may be produced as a response to this infection. The analysis revealed that older adults with signs of gum disease and mouth infections were statistically more likely to develop Alzheimer’s. The bottom line is, get regular periodontal treatment to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

On another note, I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and recommend all my patients to do the same.
