Abstract

Occlusal pressure has been recognized as an efficient regulator of eruption rate in rat incisors. An abnormal level of the occlusal plane, as determined by incisor length, exhibits a selective regulatory influence on eruption and attrition rates in an attempt to reestablish normal conditions.
