The Importance of Dental Health for Men

Posted on 2/20/2023 by Evan
The Importance of Dental Health for MenIt seems men are staking their claim without shame on self-care with man therapy, man caves, and manscaping. Men's oral health affects their overall health, which is why oral health should be a top priority. Research indicates that men are more likely to suffer from periodontal disease than women, so dental health should be addressed for men.

Prostrate Issues

When the prostate is afflicted with cancer or otherwise infected or inflamed, prostate-specific antigens increase. A number of studies have shown a connection between inflammation in the gums and inflammation elsewhere in the body.


A connection exists between poor oral hygiene and Alzheimer's disease due to inflammation. The inflammation affects organs and the nervous system, causing Alzheimer's to worsen.

Heart Disease

The relationship between periodontal disease and heart disease is still being investigated. Health conditions related to blood flow are at risk as a result of gum disease.


Those with periodontal disease are more likely to suffer from impotence, particularly those over 70 and under 30. Similarly, to heart disease, chronic inflammation, that is associated with gum disease, adversely affects the blood vessels and their flow.

Make a New Routine

You can still improve your oral health if you find it isn't as good as it should be. It is easy to adopt good dental care practices. See your dentist every six months. Make an appointment for X-rays, an examination, and a cleaning. Your dentist will examine the condition of your teeth, gums, and mouth and recommend ways to keep them healthy. To prevent plaque build-up, use ADA recommended alcohol-free mouthwash every day. Before important meetings, consider using mouthwash to freshen your breath. For best results, brush your teeth for two minutes two times a day. As well as brushing twice a day, flossing twice a day can prevent plaque buildup between teeth.
