Posts for tag: Prostate Inflammation

Research published in Dentistry suggests that treating gum disease may help reduce symptoms of prostate inflammation. In the study, 27 patients with prostatitis and moderate to severe gum disease receive treatment for gum disease and showed significant improvement in their gums within four to eight weeks.  Participants received no treatment for their prostatitis, but symptoms improved in 21 of 27 of them after their gum disease was treated. 

Over 47 percent of the US adult population aged 30 years and older have mild, moderate or severe gum disease.  In addition, 64 percent of adults (nearly two-thirds) over age 65 have moderate to severe forms of gum disease.
