The aim of the present study was to evaluate the production of superoxide anion (O(2)(-)) in the trigeminal complex nuclei after a functional mechanical overload of the teeth due to the preference for masticating on one side in rats. The preference for masticating on one side was induced by the discomfort due to a small abrasion of one molar; such… CONTINUE READING
