Paper Abstract

To investigate the ablation process of the diode pumped Er:YAG laser using two different handpieces (free beam vs contact mode) an experimental setup for defined movement of tooth slides while irradiation was realized. By using a high speed camera the ablation process was investigated. The results show a higher ablation rate and irradiation at higher mean laser power without thermal injury using the contact handpiece which can be explained by the results of the high speed camera. In conclusion these experiments with the diode pumped Er:YAG laser system demonstrate its ability for efficient and very fast cavity preparation.
