Knowledge on dental trauma and orthodontic tooth movement held by a group of orthodontists
The objective of this work was to assess the knowledge about orthodontic tooth movement and dental trauma held by a group of orthodontists in specific areas of Brazil. For this purpose, 166 questionnaires with 15 objective ...
Induction of ankylosis in the incisor for orthodontic tooth movement in rats
Background/Aim: The present research evaluated the induction of ankylosis and the eruption rate in rat incisors, with the aim of achieving stable anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) of the molars. Material and ...
Induced tooth movement: standardization of terms to describe the effects of forces on the periodontal ligament: compression/Traction instead of Pressure/Tension
(Dental Press International, 2012)
There is no reason for Dentistry to use different terms for phenomena defined in Physics, the specific field in which concepts associated with forces are established and adapted. In place of pressure/tension, the ...
Importance of periodontal ligament thickness
This study evaluated whether periodontal ligament (PL) thickness varied with root size and examined the possible influence of this variation on orthodontic mechanics. Measurements were taken of the maxillary left first ...
Electrical stimulation enhances tissue reorganization during orthodontic tooth movement in rats
Objective: This study evaluated the effects of a low-intensity electric current on tissue reorganization during experimental orthodontic tooth movement. Materials and methods: Thirty-two animals were divided into two groups ...
Effect of alendronate sodium on tooth movement in ovariectomized rats
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-05-01)
Objectives: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of two different dosages of alendronate on induced orthodontic movement in an experimental model involving rats with osteoporosis following ovariectomy.Design: ...
