The purpose of this study was to evaluate the histologic changes within the condyle in response to mandibular widening using osteodistraction. Mandibular midline osteotomies were made in nine Macaca mulatta monkeys and tooth-borne distraction devices were bonded to the mandibular dentition. Distraction was continued until a 3-5 mm widening was achieved. The(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to elucidate the biology of distraction osteogenesis during mandibular widening. Midsymphyseal vertical interdental osteotomies were performed in nine Macaca mulatta monkeys. After a latency period a tooth-borne appliance was activated at a rate of 0.5 mm twice a day for 7-10 days. The appliance was then stabilized for(More)
PURPOSE It has been previously demonstrated that distractors placed parallel to the mandible in the transverse plane, without regard to the vector of distraction create lateral displacement tendencies at the appliance-bone interface, leading to potential clinical problems and complications. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical effects(More)
