The purpose of this study was to evalute the corrosion resistance of chemically and thermally recycled metal brackets. In vivo, two types of recycled metal brackets and new brackets were directly bonded for 1 year, and then the microstructure of bracket surface was examined by S.E.M. (J.S.M.-840 Scanning Electron Microscope, Japan). The following results were obtained. 1) The microstructure of new and chemically recycled metal bracket surfaces showed regular structure without island formation and recrystallization; and after 1 year, the same appearance except some scratches. 2) The microstructure of thermally recycled metal bracket surfaces showed a beginning of island formation and recrystallization by annealing, and after 1 year, a typical corrosive appearance, completely island formation with some metal grains by recrystallization. 3) Chemically recycled metal brackets showed better corrosion resistance than thermally recycled metal brackets.
