Men with erection problems are 3 times more likely to have inflamed gums

"Physical factors cause nearly two-thirds of cases, mainly because of problems with the blood vessels, with psychological issues like emotional stress and depression accounting for the remainder.

"Chronic periodontitis (CP) is a group of infectious diseases caused predominantly by bacteria that most commonly occur with inflammation of the gums.

"Many studies have reported that CP may induce systemic vascular diseases, such as coronary heart disease, which have been linked with erection problems."

The average age of the men in both groups was just under 36 and there were no significant differences when it came to body mass index, household income and education.

Their sexual function was assessed using the International Index of Erectile Function and their gum health using the plaque index, bleeding on probing, probing depth and clinical attachment level.

"To our knowledge, erectile dysfunction and CP in humans are caused by similar risk fa
