Our white blood cells and tooth decay
Happy beautiful March day,
I came across an interesting article in the Oral Health magazine about our white blood cells and dental decay, which I thought to share it with you.
Neutrophils help in healing an injured tissues and fighting infections. So any of these situations increases the number of these white blood cells. Now the study has shown that these cells which enter the mouth through the gum can cause failure of the white fillings and break down tooth structure causing decay. As the number of the neutrophils increases when there is an inflammation hence having a good oral hygiene can reduce their numbers.
Happy flossing and brushing!
