Abstract
The basic principles, instrumentation, analytical capabilities and limitations of LAser Microprobe Mass Spectrometry (LAMMS) are briefly presented. Applications of LAMMS in dental science are reviewed. A detailed LAMMS investigation of metallic particles incorporated in the human oral mucosa underlines the potential figures of merit for clinical and toxicological research.
