Osteoclast activity in terms of number, nucleus content and position in relation to bone surface features was quantitated during experimental periodontal disease. The increase in total osteoclast population, particularly on periosteal rather than endosteal surfaces, was due mainly to the number of cells in direct contact with the bone surface (on-bone osteoclasts). On-bone cell nuclei per mm of bone surface was constantly significantly greater in experimental animals than in controls. There was… CONTINUE READING
