Paper Abstract

Certain properties of the laser action on the hard tooth tissues have been studied, using free running pulsed Er-doped YAG, YSGG, YAP and YLF lasers, operating in 3 micrometers wavelength range. The influence of the laser radiation wavelength, power density and sample structure on the tooth destruction threshold have been studied.
