OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess by light microscopy changes in alveolar bone during orthodontic movement in rats. BACKGROUND Orthodontic movement causes both removal and deposition of bone tissue. The use of laser phototherapy (LPT) is considered an enhancement factor for bone repair. METHODS Thirty Wistar rats were divided into two groups (n = 15) and subdivided according to animal death (7,13, and 19 days). Half of the animals in each group were treated with LPT during… CONTINUE READING
