Effect of Load Deflection on Corrosion Behavior of NiTi Wire

ABSTRACT

For dental orthodontic applications, NiTi wires are used under bending conditions in the oral environment for a long period. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of bending stress on the corrosion of NiTi wires using potentiodynamic and potentiostatic tests in artificial saliva. The results indicated that bending stress induces a higher corrosion rate of NiTi wires in passive regions. Continue reading Effect of Load Deflection on Corrosion Behavior of NiTi Wire
