INTRODUCTION: Information about the effect of tooth movement on the myelinated nerve in the periodontal ligament is limited. In this study, we aimed to investigate what responses of the periodontal myelinated nerve can be evoked during experimental tooth movement.
METHODS: In experimental-I group, the maxillary left and mandibular right third molars were moved distally. In experimental-II group, the maxillary left third molar but not the right one was moved, and the bilateral mandibular third molars were extracted. The ultrastructures of the myelinated nerve in the periodontal ligament of the bilateral maxillary third molars were observed under a transmission electron microscope. The expression of myelin basic protein was evaluated by immunohistochemistry.
RESULTS: Degenerative ultrastructural changes of the myelinated nerve in the periodontal ligament were noticed mainly in the myelin sheath; these were observed earlier and were recoverable in the experimental-I group. In contrast, the ultrastructural changes of the myelinated nerve occurred mainly in the axons, were observed later, and were unrecoverable in the experimental-II group. A concomitant decrease of myelin basic protein expression was observed in both groups.
CONCLUSIONS: Both experimental tooth movement and occlusal changes accompanying it caused changes of the myelinated nerve in the periodontal ligament.
