Rapid wound healing after tooth extraction is expected to be occurring. In order to accelerate wound healing process, oxygenation within tissue is needed. Moderate intensity physical exercise can improve the oxygenation of tissues. Oxygen (O2) is needed by Polymorphonuclear (PMN) and macrophages to phagocyte microorganisms and necrotic tissue. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of moderate intensity physical exercise to PMN and macrophages expression after tooth extraction in wistar rat (Rattus norvegicus). Rats were divided into 4 groups: 2 control group (K1 and K2) and 2 treatment group (P1 and P2). The treatment group was given moderate intensity physical exercise for 2 weeks (swim test). Group 1 consists of K1 and P1 group which is conducted for analyzed the number of PMN one day after tooth extraction. Group 2 consists of K2 and P2 group which is conducted for analyzed the number of macrophage 3 day after tooth extraction. The data was analyzed statistically using Independent t-test. There were significant different between control and treatment in PMN and macrophage expression. The number of control group is lower than treatment group. Moderate intensity physical exercises were decreased the number of PMN and macrophages after tooth extraction.
