[Biocompatibility and resistance to corrosion of orthodontic wires].

Abstract

Various materials are currently used to make orthodontic wires. This article suggests a synthesis on their resistance to corrosion and biocompatibility. In the first part, after a review of some basic notions on the corrosion processes, the authors develop the electrochemical characteristics of the three main groups of alloys used in orthodontics. They… (More)
