Paper Abstract

The results of investigation of ultrashort Nd-laser pulses interaction with hard tooth tissues are represented. The values of laser radiation induced destruction thresholds and efficiencies of laser processing of enamel and dentin are measured. The results of observation of nonlinear optical effects of second harmonic generation and continuum generation in enamel and dentin below the damage thresholds are reported.
