BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES An Er:YAG laser effectively removes dental hard substance, and causes less pain during tooth preparations than high-speed drilling. This laser was introduced to eliminate the noise, vibration, pressure, and heat associated with the high-speed drilling. However, the difference in tooth vibration caused by the Er:YAG laser and the high-speed drill is unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate tooth vibration obtained with the Er:YAG laser and high-speed… CONTINUE READING
