Paper Abstract

This paper represents a complex of investigations concerned with temperature dynamics of pulp chamber for various temporal and power parameters of YAG:Ho laser. Comparison of overheating values at various modes of water cooling system operation is performed. Method of pulp chamber temperature measuring based on temperature monitoring of a checking point of a tooth surface is advanced. Moreover, the results of a special sub-research concentrated on thermal feedback signal at tooth tissues under YAG:Nd laser radiation treatment are offered also. Finally, method of recognizing of any diverse tooth tissue types, such as:bone, dentine, enamel and gum against a thermal response is demonstrated within the limits of this research.
