The purpose of this study was to examine how Co-Cr-Mo dental alloy behaves in the solutions of different pH value and different composition over a relatively long period of time. Co-Cr-Mo dental alloy was exposed in vitro to either simulated saliva (phosphate buffer pH 6.0), a highly acidic medium resembling the extreme conditions in the oral cavity (phosphate buffer pH 3.5), and in lactic acid at pH which occurs under the dental plaque (lactic acid pH 3.5). The alloy samples were immersed in these three solution for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 14, 21, and 30 days. Solutions were analysed with the ICP-AES. The analysis showed that during one month cobalt (Co), chromium (Cr), iron (Fe), zinc (Zn) and nickel (Ni) ions had been released from tested samples in all three solutions. The results of this study indicate that the leaching of the Co, Cr, Fe, Zn and Ni ions in the solution was dependent both upon the nature of the solution in which the alloy was immersed and the duration of the immersion (p < 0.001).
