Study ties poor dental hygiene to higher dementia risk

A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that regular brushing of teeth may reduce a person’s risk of developing dementia. Researchers followed nearly 5,500 people ages 52 to 105 for 18 years and found that the risk of developing dementia was up to 65% higher among those who brush their teeth less than once a day compared with those who brush daily.
