OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate, using atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), the morphological and structural changes of the enamel after irradiation with the Er:YAG laser. BACKGROUND DATA A previous study showed that subablative Er:YAG laser irradiation(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the acid resistance and structural changes in the enamel surface of permanent teeth after subablative Er:YAG laser irradiation in vitro. BACKGROUND DATA Er:YAG irradiation laser is expected to enhance acid resistance and to produce morphological changes on the enamel surface. METHODS One hundred twenty(More)
BACKGROUND An increase in the acid resistance of dental enamel, as well as morphological and structural changes produced by Er:YAG laser irradiation, has been reported. PURPOSE To evaluate the chemical changes associated with acid resistance of enamel treated with Er:YAG laser. Methods. Forty-eight enamel samples were divided into 4 groups (n = 12). Group(More)
Several scientific reports have shown the effects of Er:YAG laser irradiation on enamel morphology. However, there is lack of information regarding the morphological alterations produced by the acid attack on the irradiated surfaces. The aim of this study was to evaluate the morphological changes produced by acid dissolution in Er:YAG laser irradiated(More)
