OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of force magnitude on three-dimensional alveolar trabecular bone structure and root resorption. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-two 11-week-old Sprague Dawley rats were randomly assigned to two groups that received a mesially directed orthodontic force to the upper right first molars at different magnitudes of force, 30 g or 100 g, for 2 weeks. The contralateral molars served as controls. The teeth and alveolar bone around the teeth were dissected from the… CONTINUE READING
