The purpose of the present study was to determine whether a force of 20 cN can be biologically active for tooth movement and to examine the pain intensity during the application of light (20 cN) or heavy (200 cN) continuous forces for 7 days. In the first experiment, a force of 20 cN was applied to eight canines in five volunteers. The mean tooth movement(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of varied degrees of mandibular advancement on condylar growth. Three hundred and thirty five 35-day-old female Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 10 experimental groups (n = 10) and five control groups (n = 5) for analysis of new bone formation and 10 experimental groups (n = 14) and five control(More)
There are several reports suggesting that forward head posture is associated with temporomandibular disorders and restraint of mandibular growth, possibly due to mandibular displacement posteriorly. However, there have been few reports in which the condylar position was examined in forward head posture. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis(More)
AIM A mandible bone-borne Herbst appliance (MBBHA) would avoid the proclination of the lower incisors that occurs with any teeth-borne functional appliance. But mapping of the bone characteristics at potential fixation areas around the mental foramen has not been carried out so far. The aim of this computer tomographic (CT) study was to evaluate bone(More)
INTRODUCTION An externally applied force to the cranial vault has been reported to affect the growth of the facial skeleton. However, the effect on the mandible is unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between anteroposterior cranial vault deformation and mandibular morphology. METHODS The study sample included 44 women's(More)
INTRODUCTION Functional appliances lead, in different degrees, to loss of anchorage in the lower arch. By anchoring them to the mandibular bone, any dental side effects may be avoided and the skeletal effect enhanced. Stability of bone-borne fixation would be affected by forces created by the pull of the masticatory muscles. We aimed to identify mean(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to investigate the expression profile of cell cycle genes in the mandibular condyle on mechanical strain and natural growth, and quantify their expression intensity. METHODS Three hundred and fifty 35 days old Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into experimental groups fitted with bite-jumping appliances and control groups.(More)
