They also discovered a bacteria in the brain parts of patients who had dementia when they were alive. It is the same bacteria which causes chronic gum(periodontitis) disease.
One more study from New York University in 2010 states that there is long-term evidence proves that Alzheimer's disease and Gum inflammation are interlinked, and it could intensify the risk of cognitive dysfunction.
