Normal Wistar rats, aged four and six month, were fed an atherogenic diet and the resulting periodontal changes were determined after six and eight weeks using histological, histochemical and histometrical methods. The changes of the alveolar bone remodelling adjacent to incisor teeth were compared with those around molar teeth. A diminished formation of new bone and an increased osteoclastic resorption were found in the alveolar bone of the rats fed the atherogenic diet. In addition… CONTINUE READING
