Cognitive Function and Oral Health
The connection between oral health and cognitive function is intriguing, and seemingly is getting clearer. For example, a new prospective Japanese study of seniors living in the community reports that those with fewer teeth, were 3 times more likely to have a decline in cognitive function over 4 years, than those with more teeth.
In this context, a Canadian clinician reports the following case study.
“When Geraldo came to see me as a new client, his son had to bring him in and speak for him. Geraldo was confused and not able to communicate very well. His mouth was a disaster.
Our office arranged to have some teeth extracted and I proceeded to “clean him up” as well as start him on the Prevora protocol.
Today, he takes a half hour bus ride to my office (alone) , usually does a little shopping at the Walmart across the street and dodges traffic to cross over to my office. He has had no change in medication. Preliminary bacterial slide analysis showed elevated amounts of spirochetes and white blood cells. Today’s bacterial analysis is uneventful.”
Fewer than half of Canadian seniors visit the dentist regularly because of the fear of cost and trauma.
Prevora addresses both obstacles to oral healthcare. And if Geraldo’s experience is instructive, Prevora has significant benefits to prolonging independent living too.
