Application of optical coherence tomography to identify pulp exposure during access cavity preparation using an Er:YAG laser.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The study aimed to evaluate the ability of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to guide and identify pulp exposure using an erbium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) laser. BACKGROUND DATA The Er:YAG laser has been proven to be effective in ablating dental hard tissue and offers advantages, as there is none of the vibration and noise you get with… (More)
