    Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted on mobile phones and microwave radiation on the level of nickel in the saliva. Materials and Methods: Artificial saliva has been prepared from the laboratory and kept in three containers as 100 ml with fixed appliance for 3 days and exposed to microwave radiation and mobile phone radiation for 3 days and tested. Results: There is no significant release of nickel from the orthodontic appliances. Discussion: Microwave radiation being the second most radiation with high wavelength in the electromagnetic spectrum does not have any effect in the release of nickel in the saliva and mobile radiation also does not have any effect on fixed appliances. Conclusion: The release of nickel in the saliva from fixed appliances depends on several factors other than electromagnetic radiations.
