Paper Abstract

Enamel surface morphologic alterations were investigated when an Er:YAG focused moistened laser radiation (λ =2.94μm) was applied on canine deciduous teeth enamel. The results were compared to the data already reported concerning permanent dental enamel. The results indicated that the ultrastructural effects obtained were very alike to permanent enamel literature reports.
