BACKGROUND Rat incisor teeth exhibit continuous growth, hence they have frequently been used to study the eruption process. The aim of our study was to investigate changes in the eruption rate of impeded and unimpeded rat incisors and to determine if any relationship existed between eruption rate and length of the clinical crown. MATERIAL/METHODS An image(More)
The impeded/unimpeded eruption rates of the rat incisor have been much studied. The most commonly used optical microscopic method, which has inherent weaknesses, was compared here with an image-analysis method to measure the eruption rate of the mandibular incisor. The study also evaluated the incisal edge as a reference point for the measurement of the(More)
