Hopefully, most men reading this article will already be as dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene as they are to maintaining good male organ health. But in case they are not, it may interest them to know that sometimes the two can be related and the health of a man’s tumescent manhood may be related to some degree to the state of his oral hygiene. If that sounds a little sketchy – after all, a man’s mouth is pretty far away from his member – read on to learn more.
Oral hygiene is the overall term for the state of health associated with the mouth. In most cases, when a person talks about oral hygiene, they’re referring to the day-to-day activities a person engages in to keep the teeth healthy – brushing, flossing, using mouthwash, etc. Oral hygiene would also encompass those less-frequent activities, such as getting a dental check-up regularly, having teeth cleaned, taking care of cavities, etc.
One of the goals of good oral hygiene is to prevent the development of periodontitis, or advanced gum disease. Also called pyorrhea, periodontitis is the name given to a range of inflammatory diseases that can strike the tissues that surround the teeth.
Periodontitis starts when microorganisms develop on the teeth. The body’s immune system responds with agents to neutralize these microorganisms. The battle between the two forces significantly weakens the bones in the area and provides other problematic issues, which cause the gums to deteriorate; thus, the overall health of the teeth and mouth lessen.
As part of this decrease in overall oral health, agents are released that weaken the endothelial cells, which form the lining on the blood vessels.
So what does all this have to do with an impact on the tumescent manhood? It’s actually not as far-fetched as it sounds.
A study in a medical journal looked at rats with periodontitis. They found that many of these rats also had difficulty in attaining a tumescent manhood. But where’s the link?
Periodontitis can cause damage to the endothelial cells that line blood vessels. When these cells are damaged, the vessels are not able to open up and close up as they normally do. That means that when blood rushes to the manhood to create and maintain tumescence, not as much of it is able to get through and do its job. That’s what was happening with these rats: they either weren’t getting a tumescent manhood or they weren’t getting one that was as hard and firm as it needed to be.
The doctors theorized the damage to the endothelial cells was related to a lack of nitric oxide, one of the key components that allows blood vessels to open and be receptive to a greater flow.
Therefore, men who are interested in keeping their tumescent manhood healthy should also spend time keeping their teeth healthy. Regular brushing and flossing is key, but so is seeing the dentist on a regular basis. Often a person doesn’t know they have periodontitis until it is relatively advanced, so taking steps to prevent it or to nip it early is essential.
Oral hygiene is just one step in maintaining the health a tumescent manhood needs. Regular use of a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) also plays a role. Be sure to find a crème that includes L-arginine. This amino acid is part of the process by which nitric oxide is developed, and is important in keeping male organ blood vessels open and flowing. The crème should also include vitamin C, a component of collagen, a tissue in the body that gives skin its tone and elasticity and is vital for manhood tumescence.
