Abstract

Authors studied with Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) the surface morphology of new manufactured orthodontic arches made of rectangular NiTi wires. All the wires exhibite various patterns of superficial defects such as scratches and pits. Results suggest to further investigate the changes of wire surfaces subsequent to their use in oral environment and sterilization procedures.
