When we have an external wound the wound generally tents to clot and there is a layer of solid scab formed.
Now,Yesterday while brushing my teeth i somehow hurt my gums and it got all bloody but didn't clot neither did it pain just after the accident
after maybe like 12 or 15 hrs later i have trouble opening my lips and when i looked at the spot in the mirror the gum tissue around and on the wound had become a White/Yellowish color.
Our Mouth are supposed to be the most contaminated regions on the human body so how come these mouth wounds heal in just about a week and don't get infected .
what is the healing mechanism found in the mouth tissue cause i figure its completely different from the process on the external body wounds
