Abstract

Lasers have been proposed for numerous dental applications. Research on laser irradiation of enamel has demonstrated structural changes that resulted in a decrease in acid dissolution of the enamel. Dentin irradiation produced changes in surface morphology that improved bonding of restorative resins. This article reviews the studies of the effects of laser irradiation on oral tissues.
