Title: Impact of masticatory movements using dentures on brain activity as an early interventional tool to senile neuronal cognitive dysfunction


Total edentulism can have a markedly deleterious effect on an individual's well-being. There is a drastic demographic shift in different parts of the world resulting in an increase in ever ‘super-aged’ population due to an ever-increasing population and advances in medical technology. Complete tooth loss has been included as one of the ten leading causes of Years Lived with Disability. There is a drastic increase in the incidence of complete edentulism, along with other chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs). It is hypothesized to have a debilitating effect on cognition and memory, apart from more apparent impairments such as function and esthetics. Depending upon the strength of the movements in the oral and maxillofacial area, there may be changes in the brain activity. Therefore, mastication stimulate the cerebral cortex activity and may be helpful in preventing degradation of a brain function. The process of ingesting food was considered a complex harmonization of memory conditioned reflexes , conscious and unconscious recognition.

Audience Take Away:

By leveraging innovative solutions such as establishing masticatory movements in completely edentulous elderly population may reinnervate trigeminal nerve stimulation and shows progress in improving the neuronal cortical functioning
