Abstract:

The following research offers a quantitative approach to the question of whether or not there is acceleration or enhancement of the reparative process in hard tissue when electric currents are applied and provides a system by which the modification of the parameters of the application of current can be evaluated quantitatively. The incorporation of methods that yield qualitative and semi-quantitative results the soft tissue in vivo and the in vitro studies are included to aid in the interpretation of the quantitative data in light of what has been published heretofore and to collect data that will provide more immediate feedback information than will the more time-consuming methods employed in the examination of hard tissues.
