Ghanaian Dental Surgeon Dr. Louisa Satekla has left many in astonishment with her fundamental research claim that men with gum diseases might experience erectile dysfunction.
According to her, proper oral and gum care can contribute to preventing future problems and a man’s ability to maintain an erection.
Dr. Louisa Satekla was recognized as the best dental student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2016.
The celebrated doctor shared an image on Instagram outlining her research.
She posted an excerpt from a medical journal on the topic: “Association Between Chronic Periodontitis and Erectile Dysfunction: A Controlled Study.” “Did you know that research has shown a connection between gum diseases and erectile dysfunction? If you have symptoms like bleeding gums, loose teeth, receding or swollen gums, you should see a dentist IMMEDIATELY.”
Louisa’s post has since sparked numerous discussions on social media.
