OBJECTIVE To reproduce and compare the intraoral torsional behavior of 10 commonly used preformed upper NiTi 0.017 x 0.025 archwires in 0.018-slot brackets at 20 degrees C, 35 degrees C, and 55 degrees C. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten upper preformed NiTi archwires were compared to a multibraided stainless steel wire. An original testing bench was used to(More)
INTRODUCTION Copper-nickel-titanium alloys are supposed to deliver a shape memory effect: when they are brought to a low temperature phase and subjected to a plastic deformation, they should recover their initial shape by simple heating. Nickel-titanium alloys can display different crystallographic phases: martensite, austenite and an inconstant(More)
