Changes in Soft Tissue Measurements After Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Mandibular distraction osteogenesis is the process of generating new bone in a gap between 2 bone segments in response to the application of graduated tensile stress across the bone gap. These distraction forces applied to bone also create tension in the surrounding soft tissues resulting in simultaneous expansion of the functional soft tissue… (More)
