Unlike what most guys think, visiting the dentist regularly is more than just protecting themselves from bad breath, cavities and a slew of other oral health problems. It’s also an effective way of making sure that they won’t be experiencing erectile dysfunction anytime soon.
Now while the connection may sound a bit tough to link up, neglecting to pay close attention to your oral hygiene is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the development of plaque that clogs veins and arteries…that causes erectile dysfunction.
Blood is what makes an erection happen. A sufficient amount of it is normally channelled to the penis during sexual arousal, which basically makes its erectile tissues stiffen up. However, when the flow of blood is disrupted, you could find yourself having a weak erection or none at all.
Speaking of the disruption of blood flow, plaque tops the list as one of the major causes of erectile dysfunction. Asides from potentially causing stroke, it can also lead to the dreaded “softie syndrome” when you’d like to get rock in the bedroom.
What’s even more horrible is that while having an unhealthy diet and indulging in harmful vices can eventually lead to the development of plaque, disregarding tooth decay, cavities and sore gums speeds up the process in almost half the time.
So if you’re still not convinced why you should make visiting your dentist a regular in your schedule, here are a few more reasons that will surely give you a change of heart in no time:
Firstly, you will get bad breath.
Let’s get this straight. Having a funky breath is surely one of the biggest hindrances if you’re looking to get your lover between the sheets. Moreover, meeting women can be tough when you have bad breath as well since it can instantly make them walk the other way instead of actually talking to you.
Secondly, you will suffer from unexpected toothache and gum disease.
Having a toothache is like going through extreme pain that can be easily described as similar to an uppercut out of the blue. The pain is acutely sharp and can happen at any time. What makes it even scarier is you don’t have a clue how long it will last. Ignoring gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis can possibly lead to your teeth falling out and, in some cases, bone loss.
Thirdly, you can possibly lose all of your teeth.
Come to think of it, would you like to lose all of your teeth sooner or later? Besides making eating a bit challenging, having rotten or no teeth can easily sap your sexual confidence in a snap.
