Gum disease, one of the most common dental diseases (If your gums bleed, then you probably have some level of gum disease!), is linked to many other conditions, such as Heart Disease.
A recent study looked at men in their thirties, about 80 who had erectile dysfunction, and about the same who didn’t. What they found was over half those with the condition also had gum disease. Compare this with less than a quarter of the healthy men who had signs of gum disease.
This shows that there is quite possibly a link between good, effective tooth brushing, and removal of harmful bacteria in the mouth, and erectile dysfunction. Combine this with the known link between gum disease and heart disease, and this should motivate men to actually go and get their teeth and gums looked at!
