Q & A - Erectile Dysfunction and Gum Disease
Research from Taiwan has shown a link between periodontitis - a severe form of gum disease - and erectile dysfunction (ED). The connection appears to be stronger among men under age 30 and over age 70.
Researchers examined insurance and registry data for almost 33,000 men with ED and almost 162,500 men without erectile difficulties. Of all the participants, 12% of the men had periodontitis. This group included about 27% of the men with ED and 9% of the men without ED.
