A Key Step to Preventing Dementia and Alzheimer's Starts Here

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are not inevitable, and there is mounting research that the cause and acceleration of these diseases are linked to a specific bacteria called P. gingivalis[^1]. This bacterium is largely created by periodontal disease[^2]. The bacteria get into your bloodstream and travel to your brain through inflamed and bleeding gums[^3]. Once the bacteria get into your brain, it slowly starts attacking your neurons and creates amyloid plaque, which has been identified as the main cause of dementia and Alzheimer[^4].

Don’t delay! The sooner you start, the greater the prevention.

We Treat a Root Cause of Dementia and Alzheimer's

P. Gingivalis is the enemy, and it slowly creates dementia and Alzheimer[^1]. Large clinical studies have shown that you are 70% more likely to develop dementia or Alzheimer’s if you have inflamed or bleeding gums, which are main indicators of periodontal disease[^5]. This disease increases the production of P. Gingivalis and allows for greater transport of the bacteria to your brain[^6]. Even if you don’t have the symptoms of periodontal disease, you can still produce P. Gingivalis, and it can get into your bloodstream through simple chewing[^6]. So, finding out if you have P. Gingivalis or periodontal disease is a key step in prevention of dementia or Alzheimer[^5][^6].

Your First Step to Preventing Dementia or Alzheimer

Starting as soon as possible in eliminating the enemy of P. Gingivalis is your key to preventing dementia or Alzheimer[^1]. Even if you have been diagnosed with early onset dementia or Alzheimer’s, having P. Gingivalis will accelerate your cognitive decline 6 times faster if left untreated[^7]! Getting tested for P. Gingivalis and periodontal disease is vital to your mental health moving forward[^7].
