OBJECTIVE It has been shown that ultrasound stimulation accelerates repair of orthodontically induced root resorption. However, the mechanism of such adaptive change is still unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate pulsed ultrasound on the differentiation-potential and cementoblast-mediated osteoclastogenesis using a cementoblastic cell line. DESIGN Cultured cementoblasts (murine cementoblastic cell line, OCCM-30) were subjected to ultrasound exposure (frequency = 1 MHz; pulsed 1:4… CONTINUE READING
