Abstract Piezoelectric currents in mechanically stressed bone were implicated in the activation of bone cells. The objectives of this experiment were to determine the usefulness of exogenous electric currents in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement and to study the effect of electric-orthodontic treatment on periodontal cyclic nucleotides. Maxillary canines were tipped in five cats by 80 g force. Two groups of five cats each were treated by an electric-orthodontic procedure to one maxillary… CONTINUE READING
