Centre Oral Health Talk

We hope to cooperate with various communities/elderly centres to hold oral health talks (free of charge) under the "Jockey Club Special Oral Health Programme". We want to share with elders, people concering cognitive impairment and caregivers on self-maintaining oral health in order to reduce the chance of developing oral diseases.

Oral Health is Related to Dementia?

A US study has discovered that a type of periodontal bacteria travels around the body and binds to a toxin linked to Alzheimer's disease! Researchers looked for the bacteria in brain samples from people who died from Alzheimer's disease and found through experiments that they can transfer from the mouth to the brain.
