High WBC, other values normal. Get stressed all time, have tooth problem. Related ?

Hi, I went to the doctor for a complete physical and everything came back great except my white blood cells were high, 13,000. My thyroid, platelets, red blood cells and everything else were completely fine. I never get sick but I do have bad teeth and have had a few root canals and procedures done. I am also extremely emotionally stressed all the time. Could my teeth and stress be causing my elevated WBC count?
