Tip of the Day: Healthy Teeth Can Keep You Sane

by Eubie on August 17, 2013

Once again we’re championing the benefits of good dental care, only today’s tip recommends keeping your teeth ship-shape in order to stave off Alzheimer’s disease, or so this web article says. You already know the basics: brush twice a day, morning and night. Floss once a day, and visit the dentist twice a year. If you have bleeding gums (a sure sign of gingivitis, which is associated with Alzheimer’s) then make an appointment, or, be more diligent in your brushing-and-flossing routine. Alzheimer’s is one of the nastiest (and increasingly common) afflictions affecting the aged. Take care of your teeth and maybe you won’t be one of the unlucky ones who gets this awful disease. Oh, and don’t forget to brush your tongue!
