Near-IR (approximately 1 micron) lasers are presently used for a variety of intra-oral applications including dental hard tissue ablation, although the light intensity distribution and subsequent heating of the hard tissue are still poorly understood. This paper presents a detailed numerical study of the scattered light intensity distribution along with the corresponding predicted thermal response. The calculations are based on recently published scattering and absorption data for dental hard… CONTINUE READING
