Paper Abstract

Terahertz frequency spectroscopic imaging studies of teeth are reported. The aim is to establish the characteristic properties of enamel and dentine at these high frequencies. Changes to the THz characteristics as a result of various types of tooth abnormalities are reported showing the potential of this technique for dental diagnosis
