AIM To examine the effect of carbon dioxide laser irradiation on mineralization in dental pulp cells. METHODOLOGY Rat dental pulp cells were irradiated with a carbon dioxide laser at 2 W output power for 20, 40 and 60 s, and were cultured in ascorbic acid and beta-glycerophosphate containing media. Cell viability was examined 24 h after laser irradiation(More)
