The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the heavy forces exerted by the rapid palatal expansion (RPE) appliance on the pulpal tissue of anchor premolar teeth and to evaluate these effects by histologic and histomorphometric methods. Materials consisted of 34 sound upper premolars, extractions of which were required as part of orthodontic treatment. Twenty-three teeth were extracted after RPE; the remaining 11 teeth, which had not undergone any orthodontic force, were taken as… CONTINUE READING
