    Aim: The aim of this study is known about the cytotoxic effects of soldered molar bands and welded molar bands. Materials and Methods: A molar band welded to lingual health for removable transpalatal arch and a molar band soldered to transpalatal arch and its cytotoxicity is tested by indirect method. Objective: The first objective of this study was to evaluate and compare the cytotoxicity of welded and soldered molar bands. Results: As per ISO 10993:5, the achievement of numerical grade >2 is considered as cytotoxic effect. The test samples showed none cytotoxic reactivity to L929 cells after 24 contact. Discussion: The practitioner should pay attention to the composition and the polish of soldering silver-based alloys containing copper and zinc to limit cytotoxic ion release. The cytotoxicity of the used sample related to ion release might be related to some clinical subacute effects related with orthodontic materials; thus, a long-term release period may be suitable to evaluate in vitro the subacute clinical effects of alloys. Conclusion: Since the test samples achieved a numerical grade not >2, the samples are considered as non-cytotoxic. Control gave none cytotoxic reactivity as expected.
