In conservative and restorative dentistry, as well as in orthodontics, different metals, pure or alloyed are widely used. The introduction of metallic elements in the oral cavity can involve galvanic phenomena due to the contact between the physiological fluids, as saliva and blood, and the metallic restorations. In this way the generation of electrical potential and the circulation of electrical currents can take place, producing pathological consequences. In this paper, we propose a… CONTINUE READING
