OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate in vitro morphological and chemical changes on human deciduous enamel produced by Er:YAG laser irradiation, fluoride application, combined treatment, and acid dissolution. BACKGROUND DATA Er:YAG laser has been proposed as a potential preventive dental caries strategy. There is scarce information regarding deciduous enamel. METHODS Eighty enamel samples were assigned to eight groups (n=10): G1, control; G2, G3, and G4, Er:YAG laser… CONTINUE READING
