OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to analyse the effect of irradiation on bone mineral density (BMD). MATERIALS AND METHODS All maxillary and mandibular pre-molars and molars of six minipigs were extracted. After a 3-month healing period, the maxilla and mandibles of three minipigs received three irradiation exposures at a total dose of 24 Gy. At… CONTINUE READING
