Brushing your teeth twice a day can boost your sperm count.
That's according to the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) who have advised reaching for a toothbrush after research found that infertile men are far more likely to suffer from gum disease.
more than half the men with low sperm counts or no sperm at all displayed developed gum disease.
Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes and strokes and now infertility.
half the men suffered from gingivitis, and two thirds of these men had low sperm counts. Gingivitis causes inflammation characterised by bleeding gums and soreness.
One third of the men suffered periodontal disease, which affects the tissues supporting the teeth and can lead to tooth loss. Half of the men with no sperm count had chronic periodontal disease.
