INTRODUCTION: Oral environment promotes corrosion of metallic components of orthodontic appliance, which leads to release of metals from metallic component causing relevant health threat. AIM: This study is planned to evaluate and compare the release of metal ions from NiTi and Titanium Molybdenum Alloy (TMA) Orthodontic arch wire. MATERIAL AND METHOD: 10 wires each of NiTi and TMA will be incubated in simulated oral environment in artificial saliva for 90 days. After incubation, artificial saliva will be collected and subjected to analytical procedure using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Data will be subjected to statistical analysis.
