Abstract

This paper reviews the corrosion of metallic restorations in the oral environment and its adverse effects on patients. Typical corrosion damages of metallic restorations observed in the oral cavity were shown and the factors affecting the biodegradation of these restorations were discussed. The biological side effects reported in the literature, especially an allergy to metallic ions dissolved from the restoration were described.
