Effect of Lithothamnium sp and calcium supplements in strain- and infection-induced bone resorption.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of Lithothamnium sp (LTT) supplement, a calcium-rich alga widely used for mineral reposition, on strain-induced (orthodontic tooth movement [OTM]) and infection-induced bone resorption (periodontal disease [PD]) in mice.
