Mercury vapor release from dental amalgam after laser treatment.

Abstract

The aim of this in vitro study was to determine whether the treatment of amalgam with different lasers leads to an increased release of mercury (Hg) vapor. In the case of CO2-lasers in pulse and continuous-wave mode, there was no effect visible on the amalgam surface and no Hg vapor could be detected. Using an Nd:YAG, Er:YAG or Nd:YLF laser, crater… (More)
