OBJECTIVE Calcification of degenerating tissues in the periodontal ligament (PDL) during tooth movement was investigated longitudinally. MATERIALS AND METHODS Upper first molars of male Wistar rats were moved lingually for 1, 7 and 21 d, following which unfixed undecalcified sections of the lingual PDL (in the pressure zone) were examined histologically, histochemically (autoradiography and electron probe microanalysis).
