Cytokine profiles in crevicular fluid during orthodontic tooth movement of short and long durations.


BACKGROUND Orthodontic treatment induces a distortion of the extracellular matrix of the periodontium, resulting in alterations in cytoskeletal configuration. Cytokines are known to facilitate this process by inducing cellular proliferation, differentiation, and stimulation of periodontal remodeling. The aim of the present study was to measure a panel of… (More)
