Dental Depth Profilometry using Simultaneous Frequency-Domain Infrared Photothermal Radiometry and Laser Luminescence for the Diagnosis of Dental Caries

Abstract

Frequency-domain infrared photothermal radiometry is introduced as a dynamic dental diagnostic tool and its main features are compared with modulated laser luminescence for quantifying sound and carious enamel or dentin. Dental caries found in the fissures or grooves of teeth is very difficult to diagnose or quantify with the present clinical techniques… (More)
