TLDR
It is suggested that continuous exposure to nickel casting alloys might lead to oral tolerance mechanisms that modulate nickel sensitivity, as evidenced by the lower cell proliferation index in patients undergoing orthodontic treatment over 24 months. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that orthodontic appliances release measurable amounts of nickel and chromium when placed in an artificial saliva medium, and how much of these corrosive products are actually absorbed by patients still needs to be determined. Expand

TLDR
The results obtained from both parts of this investigation indicate that orthodontic appliances used, in their "as-received" condition, corrode in the oral environment releasing both nickel and chromium, in amounts significantly below the average dietary intake. Expand
Allergic reaction to orthodontic wire: report of case.
TLDR
The history of contact allergy to jewelry provided an early clue, and the microscopic features confirmed the clinical impression of allergic stomatitis. Expand
