|If the individual's immune system is battling one or more degenerative illnesses, or if the patient's parents and grandparents had histories of chronic diseases indicating increased susceptibility, Price favored avoiding treatment of infected teeth and recommended the removal of any which had recieved endodontic treatment.
On the other hand, if the patient was in good health and his or her family members were also relatively healthy, this was regarded as an indication the patient's immune system would be capable of controlling the bacteria involved in root filled teeth.
In fact, Price found that 25 percent of patients with family histories free of degenerative diseases, who had excelent immune systems, could expect to have and retain root canal fillings, and live without complications arising therefrom, through old age. This seems to indicate these patients' polymorphonuclear white blood cells are standing guard and doing their work of engulfing and destryoying invading bacteria
