Connection Between Oral Health And Erectile Dysfunction

Posted on 5/22/2023 by SRD Muscle Shoals
Connection Between Oral Health And Erectile DysfunctionIndications of a connection between dental health and erectile dysfunction continue to mount (ED). According to research, erectile dysfunction is more common among men with periodontal disease, a severe gum disease.

Poor Oral Hygiene Habits Can Cause Erectile Disfunction

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums and underlying bone that keeps teeth in place. Pain, swelling, and loss of teeth might result from not treating it. Penis blood vessels are vulnerable to periodontal disease because inflammation throughout the body might spread there.

Sexual dysfunction (ED) may result from inflammation of the blood vessels in the penis. This is because the penis needs sufficient blood flow to achieve an erection. Damaged or irritated blood vessels may be unable to transport enough blood to the penis, making an erection difficult to develop or sustain.

The bacteria that cause periodontal disease may also spread to other body regions through circulation, including the arteries that provide blood to the penis. ED can develop when these arteries become clogged or damaged due to bacterial infections.

To lessen the likelihood of erectile dysfunction (ED), it is essential to keep up with excellent dental hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, going to the dentist for exams and cleanings, and treating gum disease as soon as it is detected. Quitting smoking and reducing alcohol intake are two more ways to improve your dental health and lower your risk of ED.
