Resilience differences between TMA and stainless steel archwire after immersion in apple cider

Abstract

Objective: This research aimed to determine the differences in resilience between TMA and stainless steel archwires after immersion in artificial saliva and apple cider, and resilience between TMA and stainless steel archwires after immersion in apple cider.  Material and Method: The samples were divided into two control groups of TMA and stainless steel archwires immersed in artificial saliva and two treatment groups of TMA and stainless steel archwires immersed in apple cider. Each group consisted of 7 samples, with a diameter of 0.016 x 0.022 inches and a length of 11.6 cm. All samples were incubated, and resilience measurements were taken using a Tensilon RTF-1350 universal testing machine. Results: The resilience of TMA and stainless steel archwires immersed in apple cider was greater than in artificial saliva. However, apple cider significantly affects the change of resilience of TMA and stainless archwires. Conclusion: A significant difference was found between the resilience of the TMA and stainless steel archwires after immersion in apple cider.
