Is there a link between periodontal disease and erectile dysfunction?
That’s exactly the case with some types of impotence (or ED) and gum disease. Periodontal disease is a form of inflammatory gum disease that affects one or more periodontal tissues. The chronic inflammation links periodontal disease to other disorders namely erectile dysfunction. Researchers have found strong connections between impotence and periodontal disease. Gum disease can have an adverse effect on a man’s sexual function and overall health.
Inflammatory processes involve a bacterial formation. As bacteria get into the bloodstream, it creates serious effect across the body. Studies show that people suffering from gum disease are found to be twice as likely to develop CAD or (Coronary Artery Disease). They are also more likely to have a stroke.
Diabetic patients are more susceptible to developing periodontal disease, and periodontal disease can also trigger diabetes. A regular and healthy blood flow in the arteries is a critical component to normal sexual function. There is also a relationship between arteriosclerosis and worsening erectile dysfunction.
Blood infections are harmful to sexual health. It is best to discuss health and sexual issues with a doctor, especially in finding the right treatment for any sexual dysfunction.
