Tooth Loss Leads to Cognitive Decline

Tooth loss is a risk factor for cognitive impairment and dementia, according to a study by researchers at New York University. However, this risk was not significant among older adults with dentures. Timely treatment with dentures is found to protect people against cognitive decline. One in six adults above the age of 65 or above has lost all their teeth. Missing teeth can lead to nutritional deficiency as it makes chewing of some foods difficult. Gum disease can also lead to cognitive decline. In addition, tooth loss may reflect life-long socioeconomic disadvantages that are also risk factors for cognitive decline. It underscores the need to maintain good oral health to preserve cognitive function.
