Abstract

Objectives: This studywas carried out to evaluate the effect of alcohol present in mouthwash on the Ni
and Ti ions release from ordinary andblue NiTiarchwire.
Materials and Methods: Sixty specimens of 2cm length from 0.017×0.025 inch maxillary Flexy and
Blue Flexy NiTi archwire (30 per each archwires) were immersed in 15 ml. distilled water, alcoholic
and alcohol-free Corsodyl mouthwashes (10 per immersing media for each archwire) for one and
half hour. After that, Ni and Ti ions released in mouthwashes and distilled waterwere measured using
atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Unpaired sample t-test and one way ANOVA test were used for
comparison between the archwire types and among different immersion media.
Results: Regarding Ni ion, the release of this ion washigher significantly in distilled water followed by
alcohol-free Chlorhexidine while the least amount released in alcoholic Chlorhexidine. For Ti ion, the
higher amount of Ti ion was released significantly from alcoholic Chlorhexidine followed by alcoholfree Chlorhexidine and the least amount was released in distilled waterin both types of archwires.Both
ions were released significantly more from conventional NiTi archwire in all mouthwashes.
Conclusions: Ions released from the tested archwires appear to be low with blue NiTi archwire. Ni ion
was released more with alcohol-free mouthwash and just the opposite forTiion.
