Erectile Dysfunction is a very sensitive topic for both men and women. When this occurs, many men may feel inadequate in front of their partner, and, many women may feel less desirable to their partner.
One of the first places to look for help and treatment besides your doctor is your dentist.
According to Perio.org, “A new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men in their 30’s who had severe periodontal disease were three times more likely to suffer from erection problems. While this study suggests an association between erectile dysfunction and periodontal disease, the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) believes more research is needed before conclusively linking the two.”
Doctors often refer to “risk factors” as the factors that help to contribute to a health condition. Lifestyle patters and choices are typically the foundation of how risk factors develop that lead to these conditions.
Besides taking the step to see your doctor and dentist, what are the other risk factors you can reduce in your life that will help to lead to a more intimate and fulfilling life with your partner?
