It is characterized by constant dysfunction due to organic, psychological causes or two combinations. Periodontitis contains chronic inflammation of gum, contributes to the destruction and tooth loss of the alveolar bone and connective tissue and leads to loss.
In this disease, periodontal bacteria or inflammatory cytokines originate from the vascular endothelial source of gingival origin. When this endothelial dysfunction occurs in penis vessels, the blood flow of this organ is disturbed and sexual impotence occurs.
158 volunteers participated: 80 male men with dysfunction were treated by the Department of Urology at the San Cecilio Hospital in Granada and other 78 control groups. Socio-demographic data were collected, periodontal tests and tests were performed to testosterone levels, lipid profile, C-reactive protein, glucemia and glycosylated hemoglobin. According to the results, 74% of erectile dysfunction present periodontitis. Patients with higher dysfunction had periodontal lesion.
According to the results, men's periodontitis is 2.28 times more likely to suffer from sexual impairment, and the biochemical variables are triglycerides, C-reactive protein and glycosylated hemoglobin.
Gingivitis Porphyromonas gingivalis is an oral disease caused by bacteria that causes inflammation of the intestine and bleeding and causes the loss of the tooth. And today, a group of Louisville University found the connection between oral disorders and Alzheimer's disease. In mice tests, the researchers cause oral infections caused by this bacterium to colonize the brain and cause a beta-amyloid protein plaque, one of the main causes of Alzheimer's disease.
