Student thesis: Bachelor


The purpose of the study was to investigate the association between Alzheimer's disease (AS) and periodontitis. The method used was a quantitative general literature study where the search for scientific articles was done in two medical databases PubMed and Cinahl. The results of the literature study were compiled on the basis of seven scientific articles. The results showed that in six of the seven compiled articles, there was a significant association between AS and periodontitis. The conclusion is that the literature study showed a clear association between Alzheimer's disease (AS) and periodontitis despite different definitions of AS and periodontitis.
