Paper Abstract

This paper represents the first results of the investigation of an interaction between YAG:Cr;Tm;Er ((lambda) equals 2.69 micrometers ) laser radiation and human hard dental tissues. A comparison of intact and carious enamel and dentine destruction thresholds by submillisecond pulses of YAG:Cr;Tm;Er laser is first given also.
