Abstract

     304 Stainless Steel, commonly used in dentistry, undergoes significant corrosion in a saliva medium. The present work studies the influence of a commercial mouthwash, Eludril, on this corrosion. Electrochemical voltammetry and impedance measurements were carried out on 304 stainless steel dental wire in artificial saliva medium (Ringer’s solution) to which the mouthwash is added. These measurements, completed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), clearly show a localized corrosion of dental wire.
