Susai Rajendran, Krishna Veni, Pandia Rajan, Sara Nya


Corrosion resistance of SS316Lin artificial saliva, in the absence and presence of a Tablet, namely, Almox 250 DT has been evaluated by AC Impedance Spectra. It is observed that when 50 ppm of Almox is added to artificial saliva, charge transfer resistance of SS 316 L increases, in presence of 50 ppm of Almox 250 DT. Similar observation is made in presence of 200 ppm of Almox also. Hence it is concluded that people having orthodontic wires made of SS 316L, can take the Tablet Almox 250 DT without any hesitation, because in its presence corrosion resistance of SS 316L  increases.
