Biomechanical effect of rapid mucoperiosteal palatal tissue expansion with the use of osmotic expanders.

Abstract

The comparative study was performed to investigate the biomechanical properties (maximum tangential stiffness, maximum tangential modulus and tensile strength) of expanded mucoperiosteal palatal tissue after rapid expansion regimen correlated with histological findings. Rabbit palatal model was used to correlate the non-operated control group, sham-operated… (More)
