Surface alterations of zirconia and titanium substrates after Er,Cr:YSGG irradiation

This study investigated changes in the roughness parameters (Sa in μm2 and Ra in μm) of yttrium-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (Y-TZP) and large-grit sandblasted acid-etched (SLA) titanium (TI) materials after decontamination by erbium chromium-doped:yttrium, scandium, gallium, and garnet (Er,Cr:YSGG) laser irradiation. Twenty disks were… CONTINUE READING
