An initial investigation of the bending and torsional properties of Nitinol root canal files.
Root canal files in size #15 and triagular cross-sections were fabricated from 0.020-inch diameter arch wires of Nitinol, a nickel-titanium orthodontic alloy with a very low modulus of elasticity. AExpand

The inappropriateness of conventional orthodontic bond strength assessment protocols.
A classification of bond strength studies is proposed with the testing environment (in vivo, in vitro, and ex vivo), loading mode (shear, tensile, and torsion), and bonding substrate (enamel, restorative, and prosthetic materials). Expand
