Evaluation of austenitic-ferritic stainless steel wires for orthodontic applications
(AMER SOC TESTING MATERIALS, 2008)
Several studies have shown that austenitic stainless steels are suitable for use in the final phases of orthodontic treatments, such as finishing and retention. These steels demonstrate appropriate mechanical properties, ...
Deflection And Flexural Strength Effects On The Roughness Of Aesthetic-coated Orthodontic Wires
(Fundação Odontológica de Ribeirão Preto, 2017)
Differences in the force system delivered by different beta-titanium wires in elaborate designs
Objective: Evaluation of the force system produced by four brands of β-Ti wires bent into an elaborate design. Methods: A total of 40 T-loop springs (TLS) hand-bent from 0.017 x 0.025-in β-Ti were randomly divided into ...
Fios ortodônticos superelásticos e sua aplicabilidade na clínica ortodôntica: revisão da literatura
During clinical routine, the orthodontist uses several materials, which include metallic alloys in the form of metallic wires. However, it is necessary that the professional has some knowledge of the properties of those ...
Stress distribution in delayed replanted teeth splinted with different orthodontic wires: a three-dimensional finite element analysis
AimThe aim was to evaluate the biomechanical behavior of the supporting bony structures of replanted teeth and the periodontal ligament (PDL) of adjacent teeth when orthodontic wires with different mechanical properties ...
Effect of heat treatment on stainless steel orthodontic wires
(Sociedade Brasileira de Pesquisa Odontológica (SBPqO), 2011-04-01)
This study evaluated the effect of heat treatment on CrNi stainless steel orthodontic archwires. Half of forty archwires of each thickness - 0.014 (0.35 mm), 0.016 (0.40 mm), 0.018 (0.45 mm) and 0.020 (0.50 mm) (totalling ...
Force level of small diameter nickel-titanium orthodontic wires ligated with different methods
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Abstract Background The aim of this study was to compare the deflection force in conventional and thermally activated nickel-titanium (NiTi) wires in passive (Damon Q) and ...
Bracket/wire play: what to expect from tipping prescription on pre-adjusted appliancesFolga braquete/fio: o que esperar da prescrição para inclinação nos aparelhos pré-ajustados
(Dental Press International, 2012)
INTRODUCTION: The opinion on the 'straight-wire' concept has been evolving since its origin, characterized by faithful followers or absolute skepticism. Currently, it seems reasonable to state that most professionals have ...
