The effect of pH, fluoride and tribocorrosion on the surface properties of dental archwires.

Abstract

Nickel-titanium and stainless steel are the most commonly used alloys for orthodontic treatments. Even though both are known to be resistant to corrosion, there are circumstances that can lead to undesired situations, like localized types of corrosion attack, wear during sliding of an archwire though brackets and breakdowns due to iatrogenic causes. The aim… (More)
