Role of Attrition and Occlusal Contact in the Physiology of the Rat Incisor: III. Prevention of Attrition and Occlusal Contact in the Nonarticulating Incisor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Removal of occlusal contact in the absence of attrition liberates the growth potential of the rat incisor, which is expressed in a doubled rate of axial growth and eruption. The differentiation times, the life spans and the rates of apposition of dental hard tissue-forming cells, however, are independent of the rates of growth and eruption.
