Man’s Sex Life Depends On His Dental Health

Certainly, the things like halitosis or bleeding gums can not look sexy. According to the latest study, such things as gum infections or gum inflammation can cause problems in male sexual life, and the worst condition can be erectile dysfunction. This conclusion was confirmed twice by the experiments carried out by different groups of scientists. The first one embraced several experiments in the labs, and it turned out that lab animals with periodontists were more prone to having erectile dysfunction.  The findings of another earlier study, which involved analyzing histories and dental problems of male volunteers, have proven that men with periodontitis are way more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction rather that the men who do not have such a dental problem.

periodontitis The experts from Luzhou Medical College in China summarized the results of all these studies and are reporting that there can be obvious connections between certain dental problems and erectile dysfunction in men. “Identifying and treating periodontitis in the patient presenting with or without [erectile dysfunction] may improve the patient’s sexual health,” the researchers have stated.

However, this work of Chinese specialists and this hypothesis received a lot of criticism. Dr. Andrew Kramer, one of the leading surgeons and male sexual health expert at the University of Maryland Medical Center, comments on the findings of the scientists from Luzhou Medical College as the following: “I don’t think your gums are related to your penis in any reasonable way.” He says that such problem as periodontitis can be a factor which can substantially worsen overall health of a man, that, in turn, can lead to mental disorders and irregularities, as well as erectile dysfunction. Dr. Kramer underlines that such factors as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and so on, can rather cause a condition like erectile dysfunction.

Further researchers are scheduled to find out, whether inflammatory condition, like periodontitis or other diseases, can really lead to erectile dysfunction and similar problems. Periodontitis, or Periodontal disease, is a serious dental condition caused by excessive bacterial plaque accumulation around certain area of the teeth. Very often it is accompanied with immuno-inflammatory and other risk factors which seriously damage dental health and can have very hard complication. For example, for many decades, Periodontal disease has been one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults.
