New Research Strengthens Connection between Oral and Overall Health, Says The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health
Date:1/23/2013

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 24, 2013

The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) responds to recent research connecting oral inflammation and erectile dysfunction by encouraging further on-going research and stressing the importance of the oral-systemic health connection.

“With each new study connecting oral inflammation with a host of life-threatening and life-altering diseases, we continue to see that oral-systemic health is a vital key to keeping our patients healthy and well,” says Dr. Dan Sindelar, president of AAOSH. “It is of great importance that these studies continue to find the latest connections between oral health and some of the most prevalent conditions that Americans face today.”

The recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men with severe periodontal disease were more than three times more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction that the men with healthy gums were. Head researchers concluded that periodontal disease should be considered a “causative clinical condition” of erectile dysfunction.

In addition, leading research continues to find connections between oral inflammation and degenerative brain conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia as well as conditions like heart disease, strokes and diabetes.

“This research adds to the mountain of evidence that oral inflammation doesn’t just affect a patient’s mouth, but has a profound effect on his or her entire body,” says Dr. Sindelar. “The results of these studies are clear: We as dental professionals must continue to stay at the forefront of oral systemic health in order to optimize our patients’ overall health.”
