BACKGROUND Diabetes is known to impair wound healing and deteriorate the periodontal condition. There is limited information about the patterns and events associated with periodontal wound repair. In this study, we evaluate the dynamics of periodontal wound repair using micro-computed tomography (microCT) and immunohistochemistry. METHODS Thirty-six male rats were used, and diabetes was induced by streptozotocin. The maxillary first molars were extracted, and a tooth-associated osseous defect… CONTINUE READING
