When the axial and coronal sections were evaluated, in addition to the inflammation in the apical region of this tooth, bone deposition was observed horizontally on the vestibule surface of the mandible (Figure 4).
Furthermore, oAECs significantly stimulated osteogenesis via increasing bone deposition or making more extensive the foci of bone nucleation.
These biomarkers can be divided into six categories: biomarkers of cell death, tissue damage, inflammation, bone resorption, bone deposition and mineralization, and other biomarkers [14].
The available phosphorus level of 0.340% in the diet increases serum phosphorus concentration and reduces the alkaline phosphatase activity, but it is not sufficient to meet the requirements for bone deposition.
The biomechanics of obturator is that it keeps the opening patent for decompression at one end while bone deposition at the other end of the lesion.
(29) Osteoconductive bone grafts provide a framework that stimulates bone deposition, but they do not induce new bone formation.
Levels of collagen byproducts and the other proteins can be measured to determine rates of bone deposition during therapy for osteoporosis.
IntroductionOsteoporosis is a disease of bone with distinctive decrease in bone mineral density and bone strength.1 The micro- architectural changes that take place in osteoporosis are because of imbalance in bone resorption by the osteoclasts and bone deposition by the osteoblasts.2Osteoporosis leads to fragile bones.3 Loss of normal micro- architecture of bone causes micro fractures to take place.4The patients may complain of non-specific bone pain anddeformity.5 Patients may present with musculoskeletal pain, numbness and decrease in body height.6 The fragility fractures in turn causes increased morbidity.3 It is important to diagnose it early before the patient presents to the emergency with a fractured hip or spine.
At a cellular level, osteoblasts are responsible for new bone deposition while osteoclasts are necessary for bone breakdown.
Continuous bone deposition, compress and obliterate the blood vessels, wherever this compression occurs the blood supply to bone is lost, bone loses its viability, prone for infection to develop osteomyelitis.
The mechanism for hepatic calcification in a patient with thalassemia major and hypoparathyroidism may be altered calcium and phosphorus hemostasis due to increased intestinal absorption and decreased bone deposition, leading to metastatic calcification, maybe superimposed on a damaged liver parenchyma affected by hemochromatosis and post-HCV hepatic cirrhosis.
When repeated exposure to physical activity is not offset with reciprocal time for tissue repair, bone resorption outpaces bone deposition. Hormonal factors influence the rate of bone resorption.
Orthodontic movement should be described as a continual and balanced process characterized by bone deposition and bone resorption, respectively, on pressure and tension sites (Figure 1).
In this situation bone resorption is seen on the pressure side and bone deposition on the tension side.
