Like the condylar cartilage of the mandible, the cartilage at the intermaxillary suture in the rat is secondary in origin and persists well into adulthood. While the condylar cartilage is generally considered to be responsive to changes in its local biomechanical environment, little is known of the response of the intermaxillary suture cartilage to similar stimuli. In order to study the effect of changes in occlusal loads on intermaxillary suture cartilage metabolism, male weanling Sprague… CONTINUE READING
