OBJECTIVES The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effects of Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers on morphology, chemical structure and diffusion processes of the root surface. MATERIAL AND METHODS 60 root samples were irradiated for 1 min each either with 60 mJ/p, 80 mJ/p and 100 mJ/p using Er:YAG laser or with 0.5W, 1.0W and 1.5W using Nd:YAG laser. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to determine the morphology, infrared (IR) spectroscopy to assess the alterations in chemical… CONTINUE READING
