Adhesion of composite to enamel and dentin surfaces irradiated by IR laser pulses of 0.5-35 micros duration.

Abstract

The characteristics of laser-treated tooth surfaces depend on the laser wavelength, pulse duration, spatial and temporal laser beam quality, incident fluence, surface roughness, and the presence of water during irradiation. Ablated surfaces are most commonly restored with adhesive dental materials and the characteristics of the ablated surfaces influence… (More)
