The effect of chemical and/or mechanical conditioning on the Er:YAG laser-treated root cementum: analysis of surface morphology and periodontal ligament fibroblast attachment.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES This study compared the surface morphology as well as the biocompatibility of dental root cementum treated with Er:YAG laser irradiation alone and with the laser irradiation followed by chemical and/or mechanical conditioning. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS Healthy cementum plates were randomly assigned to the following… (More)
