Spatial stability following palatal expansion (PE) treatment was studied longitudinally on 8 Macaca fascicularis monkeys. The sample was divided into short-term and long-term groups. The four subjects in each group received: (1) an indirect screw (IS) PE appliance (F = 2035 g), (2) an indirect magnetic (IM) PE appliance (F = 258 g and 360 g), (3) a direct magnetic (DM) PE appliance (F = 258 g and 360 g) and (4) a sham appliance. The terms direct and indirect describe force transmission directly… CONTINUE READING
