Abstract
We study the viability of using scaled bodies to predict the heat distribution in tooth that are exposed to pulsed heat sources. We develop the scaling model with four scaling parameters. We used this model to simulate dental tissue ablation with Er:YAG laser. Good agreement between the simulated predictions and the published experimental results is found for low values of fluence, less than 100 J/cm2.
