Orthodontic tooth movement through recently distracted fibrous bone tissue has not been investigated previously. We hypothesized that a tooth can be moved into the fibrous new bone created by the distraction process at a rapid rate. Four mature beagle dogs were used in this study. An edentulous space was created in 2 weeks by using a bone-borne intraoral distraction device on each side of the mandibular body between the third and fourth premolars. Calibrated elastic threads with 50 g of… CONTINUE READING
