Paper Abstract

Evaluation of molar dental restorations on enamel is performed using optical coherence tomography (OCT) with 10 µm resolution. Images of ~50 µm failure gaps in the restorations are demonstrated and the OCT images are compared with x-ray and optical microscopy pictures. The results demonstrate the potential of the technique for clinical evaluation of dental restorations.
