Fig. 4. Graphical representation of the coefficients of friction (CoFs) for uncoated (CON), alumina (Al2O3)-coated (AlO), titanium nitride (TiN)-coated, and chromium nitride (CrN)-coated bracket and nickel–titanium (NiTi) and stainless steel (SS) archwire combinations. Among all groups, the lowest mean CoF value was observed in the AlO coated bracket / AlO coated SS archwire group, whereas the highest mean CoF value was observed in the uncoated bracket / TiN coated SS archwire group.
