INTRODUCTION The variables affecting speed of tooth movement are unquantified. In particular, the effects of stress and human biological variations are unknown. Therefore, our objectives in this study were to determine relationships between (1) stress and velocity of tooth translation (v(t)), and (2) interleukin-1 (IL-1) gene cluster polymorphisms, IL-1beta and IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF), and v(t). METHODS Ten subjects had their maxillary first… CONTINUE READING
