Resum
Reuse of NiTi orthodontic wires has become increasingly common in dental clinics. For sterilization and recovery of the original superelastic properties of the wires, a heat treatment is usually performed between 500 and 600 ◦C. The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of these thermal treatments on the mechanical behavior and the microstructure of NiTi archwires of different compositions. A reduction of the Ni content was observed in the matrix of the thermally treated archwires, due t...
