The Application Of Stem Cells In The Orthodontic Maxillary Expansion


This invention relates to the contributions of the bone marrow- and adipose tissue- derived mesenchymal stem cells applied following the maxillary expansion - a frequently used method for the orthodontic treatment - to the healing of the expanded bone tissues. In the invention, adipose tissue and bone marrow-derived stem cell applications increased the healing and quality of the bones following the maxillary expansion and the applied stem cells were involved in the bone structure. Thus, the relapse following the maxillary expansion treatment was avoided. This application will shorten the treatment period for patients undergoing the maxillary expansion treatment and the patients will not have to use apparatus for a long period of time.
