Okay ladies, beware of the guy who doesn’t take care of his teeth. A new study suggests there is a link between a deflated penis and poor dental hygiene. The study found that men with erectile dysfunction were 79% more likely to also have chronic periodontal disease. If you aren’t familiar with CPD it is an infection of the gums. The gums pull away from the teeth, creating deep pockets that carry tons of bacteria, eventually spreading to the bone. The gum disease causes chronic inflammation which can ultimately damage the endothelial cells, which form the lining on all of the blood vessels, including those in the penis. Damaged endothelial cells can result in impartial blood flow, resulting in a not so satisfying night in the sack.
According to Urologist Larry Lipshultz, M.D., “Because the blood vessels to the penis are about 25 percent the size of the ones to the coronaries, ED can often serve as an early warning sign for heart problems and vascular disease.” So if your guy is experiencing ED, he may want to consult with a doctor to make sure that isn’t thing malfunctioning.
Thankfully if CPD is caught in its early stages, it can be addressed with a few deep cleaning from a dentist. Later discoveries may result in gum surgery, or even worse tooth extraction. It’s very important that precautionary measures are taken ahead of time, by simply exercising good daily dental hygiene. According to Sally J. Cram, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association, “Most people who have the disease don’t feel pain until it is in the advanced stages so be sure to see your dentist if you experience red swollen gums, bleeding gums when brushing, bad breath, loose teeth, and receding gums.”
So check out his teeth ladies, if he isn’t keeping his mouth in check, he might be worth passing up!
