The objective of this study was to obtain the number of cycles that NiTi archwires withstand in fl exural fatigue. Sixty circular 0.016" archwires from ORMCO (20) , GAC (20) and 3M (20) were tested at 37 o C. Roth brackets (0.022x0.025") were

The results were statistically tested using the one-way ANOVA Test and a Tukey Test (p < 0.001). The fractured surfaces were observed with a metallographic microscope (125X) to evaluate the fracture type. ORMCO archwires showed more elasticity than 3M and GAC archwires.
