Edentulism and Trajectories of Cognitive Functioning Among Older Adults: The Role of Dental Care Service Utilization
TLDR
The results indicated that edentulism and dental care service utilization were independently associated with cognitive decline during the observation period and suggested that providing access to dental services may promote cognitive health and potentially reduce health care expenditures. Expand

Tooth Loss Increases the Risk of Diminished Cognitive Function
TLDR
The results of this study show that the risk for cognitive impairment and dementia increases with loss of teeth, which adds to the evidence showing links between oral and general health and suggests that oral health strategies aimed to preserve teeth may be important in reducing risk of systemic disease.

TLDR
Elderly people referred to a memory clinic were at an elevated risk of developing high levels of coronal and root-surface caries during the first year after referral, and those with a dementia diagnosis other than AD appeared to be at a particularly high risk ofdeveloping multiple carious lesions during thefirst year after diagnosis.
