Abstract


span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 14px" class="Apple-style-span"In the last few years our histology laboratory has worked in collaboration with Winchmore Hill Dental Practice in London in studying nitric oxide synthase (NOS) protein expression by the use of immunohistochemistry in dental pulps following orthodontic treatment (A. Gerbino et al. 2000; A. Gerbino et al 2001; A. Gerbino et al 2001.) The study has been carried out on samples taken from orthodontically treated and non-orthodontically treated teeth. The results suggest a close correlation between the duration of the orthodontic traction and the expression of the above-mentioned neurotransmitter (NO)./span
