Mind your teeth-The relationship between mastication and cognition.

Gerodontology 2018 Nov 27. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Oral Kinesiology, Academisch Centrum Tandheelkunde Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

This article explores the multifactorial relationship between mastication and cognition, with a focus on dementia. Older persons, especially those with dementia, are at great risk of suffering from oral health problems such as orofacial pain and loss of natural teeth. A possible explanation could be that the cognitive and motor impairments resulting from dementia cause a decrease in self-care and as such, a worsening of oral health. Read More

Historical perspectives on advertising and the meme that personal oral hygiene prevents dental caries.

Gerodontology 2018 Oct 14. Epub 2018 Oct 14.

Department of Oral Health Sciences, School of Dentistry, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.

The consensus of a leading scientific panel in 1930 was that oral hygiene products could not prevent dental caries. Their view was that dental caries prevention required the proper mineralisation of teeth and that vitamin D could achieve this goal. Over a hundred subsequent controlled trials, conducted over seven decades, largely confirmed that this scientific panel had made the right decisions. Read More
