How Having A Bad Tooth Can Cause Sexual Problems
Did you brush your teeth already? I know that is a rather strange question to ask when you’re checking out AdviceForHim.com, but you’re sure to be more conscious of your oral and dental hygiene when you read on.
I received a very interesting question from Oscar, a long-time AFH reader, in my email the other day and I’d like to share it with you.
He asks if his sexual performance will be affected by the bad tooth he still hasn’t gotten rid of for a few months now. Oscar adds that he still hasn’t dropped by his dentist’s clinic because it doesn’t hurt even a bit.
Well, if you’re reading this right now, Oscar, I highly suggest you visit your dentist and have your teeth and gums checked thoroughly. And finally have that bad tooth extracted as well. Or else put yourself at risk of being prone to erectile dysfunction in the long run.
Sure this sounds crazy right now, but you’ll find out more when you follow along…
When things get hot in the bedroom between you and your partner, the brain immediately gets to work by stimulating the endocrine glands to let loose specific mood-altering hormones that are needed to set off key changes the body needs to get it ready for lovemaking.
Besides making the skin extra sensitive, especially in and around the erogenous zones, these hormones also spike up the breathing and heart rate, which causes the blood flow in the body to go faster and more forceful than usual. Interestingly, most of this blood is directed to the pelvic region, where they are absorbed by the erectile tissues in the penis.
An erection is achieved once these spongy erectile tissues have already absorbed enough blood. And as long as the blood flow in your system is optimal, you are sure to keep rock hard until you’ve reached orgasm as well.
The thing is something else happens in the long run when your oral health is in bad shape. This can mean having a bad tooth, diseased gums or any other oral health issue you may be suffering from these days.
As it turns out, these oral conditions promote the formation of small lesions inside the mouth, in which bacteria can pass through and wreak havoc once they infiltrate the blood vessels. Besides disrupting the normal flow of blood that pass though these natural channels, these unwanted visitors also promote the formation of plaque that can easily clog up the circulation.
And when this happens, you’re sure to experience unpleasant changes in your ability to get rock hard on demand when you and your lover get frisky in bed. It’s either you’ll only get a very weak erection that’s not enough to sexually penetrate your partner or perhaps not get hard at all.
So if you’re suffering from any oral health issue these days, make it a point to schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as you can. Or else you might just find yourself unable to rise up to the occasion sooner or later.
