Imbalance in gum bacteria linked to Alzheimer’s disease

Older adults with more harmful than healthy bacteria in their gums are more likely to have evidence for amyloid beta – a key biomarker for Alzheimer's disease – in their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), according to new research from the New York University College of Dentistry and Weill Cornell Medicine. However, this imbalance in oral bacteria was not associated with another Alzheimer's biomarker called tau.

Testimonials

A huge thank you to Jerry, Ciara and Natalie for the outstanding treatment I received at Lucan Dental Care, I’m absolutely delighted with my new smile after 6 short months, your professionalism and friendliness was really appreciated. Forever grateful.

Amy O'Doherty

Fantastic dentist, an absolute gentleman who helped me conquer my terror of dentist-I was so bad. A very patient dentist and very patient and pleasant dental nurses also. Top marks, and well deserved.

Colette O'Callaghan

Very accommodating local dentist and located in a very accessible area. Very helpful staff and great opening hours outside of the usual 9 to 5.

Vincent Gelens

Jerry and the girls are so patient when we bring the littlest kids to visit once a year. Thanks for making their first visit a very pleasant experience.

KidStart Pre-School

Excellent, friendly and efficient staff. Checkup was very educational for me and the dentist took his time to make sure he checked everything was okay. The advice given really made me listen and want to make simple steps to improve my dental hygiene. For cleaning, the hygenist cleaned every single tooth thoroughly. I recall my different dentist from other clinics only cleaning about 4 at the front properly.. she was just rushing through me! The staff here definitely do their job right with care and respect so I will be returning here from now on! Thank you.

Katie Mac Court

There is a reason why I travel 35km from Bray to Lucan Dental Care for my regular dental appointments. It is simply the best dental practice I have encountered in forty one years of dentist visits. The care I get from Gerry, Kira and Natalie is unprecedented. The team make me feel very special, and I know my teeth are in “great hands”. I have already chosen Lucan Dental Care as the dentist for my precious 1 year old daughter when her time comes. Visiting Jerry and his team now make dental check-ups a very pleasurable experience.

Gordon Ryan

I cannot praise Jerry, Kira and Natalie highly enough for the professional, friendly and gentle care they have given our family over the last few years. They saved our daughter from braces by convincing her to stop sucking her thumb – when we had failed. Jerry is a great advocate of proper teeth care but also recognises the cosmetic impact of the pearly whites! My wife feels like she has a whole new set since he achieved a remarkable improvement through whitening. Her teeth had been darkened by a medication given in childhood and no other dentist had managed to reverse the effect – but Jerry did. Well done Lucan Dental Care!
