The description of experimental installation for investigation fractal structure of dental tissues light scattering is presented. The installation includes light source (He-Ne laser), beam transformer based on microlens array, light polarization control unit and registrating device (which represented computer interfaced CCD-camera). The experimental installation provides the estimation of different kinds of light scattering in the enamel and dentin. The joint computer processing of images corresponding to different states light polarization allows us to separate the effects of light scattering caused by different scattering object as well as by relief junctions. The results of research may be useful for dental restorations, because fractal dimension defined adhesion properties of dentin.
