Abstract
Using electronic microscope we have studied the opportunity to apply YAG:Cr,Tm-Er laser irradiation (lambda equals 2.64 micrometer) for preparation of the enamel and dentine in different modes of operation. High efficiency of enamel and dentin preparation was shown when using 50 J/sm2 energy density and frequency of pulses proceeding 3-5 n. There was no damaged effects involved teeth hard tissues in our experiences.
