Paper Abstract

The variety of optical spectroscopic techniques is used for chemical analysis of normal and carious tissues. Polarization light microscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy/microscopy, Raman and IR spectroscopy/microscopy all provide valuable information on the tooth structure and chemical composition; however, near-IR laser-induced fluorescence measurements proved to be the most efficient indicator of bacterially infected tooth.
