Abstract
The results of the investigations of light propagation in the human hard tooth t issues are represented. It is shown that apart from light scattering the novel effect of waveuide light propagat ion from the enamel surface to the tooth cavity is taken place. The trajectories of light flows are the same that the direct ions of enamel prisms and dent inal tubules orientat ions. Anomal optical properties of the tooth are shown to be explained by the waveguide-scattering media model which is developed in this paper.
