Abstract

In the oral cavity, reactive oxygen and nitrogen species are continuously generated by bacterial metabolism and host-mediated cellular factors. These reactive species facilitate a critical function that regulates the outcomes of both oral and systemic diseases, such as dental caries, periodontitis, and the maintenance of blood pressure. As a result, the protective effects of ROS and RNS are being explored for future therapeutic applications.
