And this is what is due? It seems that memory problems stem from a smaller number of signals that are sent to the hippocampal section in the brain, which is the part responsible for this brain function. It is assumed that the impulses would be stimulated by the movement of the jaw and teeth, so when they are missing, this would not happen correctly.
The study involved about 273 people between ages ranging from 55 to 80 years, with an average number of teeth per person between 22 and 10 less than the total amount. People with most of their own teeth had about 4% more likely to have a better ability to remember facts from previous events in their life than their counterparts and, on the contrary, people who had no teeth had 10% worse performance in memory and speed tests
It should be borne in mind that the natural loss of memory occurs progressively as it gets older, but different pathologies, nutrition problems and oral conditions such as those mentioned can accelerate this process.
Everything is connected in our body.
The belief that the human body is a related whole, a perfect gear machine in which when a piece fails can cause failures in another point of the system, does nothing but endow this study with credibility.
Dentists and stomatologists agree that poor oral health adversely affects the health of our body in general, and can be determinant for heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, lung diseases.
The last extreme is the loss of teeth due to neglect or lack of knowledge.
For that, I always recommend a visit to the dentist or dentist that can help eliminate one of the risk factors in the future dementia, Alzheimer’s and other mental illnesses.
