Dental Applications of the Laser

  • Leon Goldman

Abstract

The teeth and oral cavity have been included in the study of tissues accessible to the laser beam. Although the possibilities of the development of laser dentistry appear to us to be excellent, there has been too little interest in the clinical and applied phases of laser dentistry by dentists and dental research groups. Research in laser dentistry by relatively few investigators has included the laser spectroscopy, laser impacts of teeth and oral cavity of experimental animals, impacts of extracted teeth of man, and rarely, the actual impacts of teeth in patients.
