Paper Abstract

On the basis of research and analysis into optical properties of teeth, this paper introduces the techniques to transform teeth phosphorescence excited by ultraviolet light into electric signals and following steps for data collection, analysis and processing. Also presented are the methods to diagnose pulp-vitality, decayed teeth, and, especially, infant caries and pre-caries diseases. By measurement of a tooth's temperature, other stomatic illnesses can be diagnosed.
