The present invention relates to development of paint, plaster, cement and plastic construction materials containing silver, zinc and copper metal ion-charged zeolite ( 1/10 w/w). The new construction materials are antimicrobial and prevent microorganism growth and reproduction of fungi, yeasts and bacteria. The product, made from construction materials containing metallic ion-exchanged zeolite, provides hygiene by preventing microbial contamination in areas and surfaces for a long time. Furthermore, lifespan of the materials produced with this technology is longer since they will be protected from biological deterioration, corrosion and decays.

This invention relates to the contributions of the bone marrowand adipose tissuederived mesenchymal stem cells applied following the maxillary expansiona frequently used method for the orthodontic treatmentto 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.
