Playing a decisive role in bone remodeling, microdamage was recently associated with orthodontic tooth movement in pigs. The present study was conducted to evaluate microdamage and its potential association with orthodontic tooth movement in the alveolar process of rat maxillae. The upper right molars of 24 male Wistar rats (10 weeks old) were splinted and… CONTINUE READING
