To understand orthodontic tooth movement and determine optimal orthodontic force from a biological viewpoint, nitric oxide production in cultured human periodontal ligament fibroblasts was measured at varying levels of hydraulic pressure. The fibroblasts in a culture flask were exposed to the controlled change in hydraulic pressure, and intracellular nitric oxide levels were measured in real time by a nitric oxide-binding fluorescent dye, diaminofluorescein-2. The fibroblasts produced a… CONTINUE READING
