TRUE OR FALSE: You dont have to brush your teeth because your white blood cells will kill the bacteria on your teeth anyways?

    It's not true. It's also not false. Me Basset Hound puppy doesn't brush and he's fine. Sure he's blind, deaf and retarded.

    It is true that WBC fight bacterias and foreign microorganisms in the body but girl these leucocytes will not be able to exit your gums to save your teeth from decaying. 

    Because firstly, your teeth is made of  enamel not skin and the WBC will stay with your blood inside your gums unless you have a cut. And secondly, those WBCs will not be able to travel from one tooth to another just to clean your teeth because eventually, the platelets will clot the cut you have in your gums *_*.

    But, if someone's really lazy of brushing her teeth, she can also think of this silly thing: soak your teeth in your blood to get the WBCs working hahhaha but mind you, the cells will eventually die in a minute so better tell them to hurry.

    Maybe, but plaque builds up on your teeth, and the white blood cells can't reach all the bacteria covered up by the plaque.

    Where are you people educated?Saliva was designed by nature to help in a minor respect to keep the teeth free of build-up but it doesn't replace brushing!

    never heard that, but I do know, IODINE levels keep away caries/cavities, most dentists are NEVER trained, our bakers used to put iodine in the bread but was told to add something else, in the 40's or 50's

    BUT unbrushed teeth are gross looking, so keep up appearences, BUT now you know that IODINE does that function, try to keep IODINE levels up to 500mcg to feel fully functioning by the iodine.

    White blood cells do kill bacteria and are the reason why gum disease is prevented. But they would be in the blood which your gums supplied with. Teeth itself is not supplied with blood.

    False. White blood cells are in your blood, as their name implies, not the surface of your teeth.
