Abstract
The aim of study is to compare the ablation effect of contact and non-contact interaction of Er:YAG and CTH:YAG laser radiation with artificial enamel caries lesion. The artificial caries was prepared in intact teeth to simulate demineralized surface and the laser radiation was applied. Contact and non-contact ablation was compared. Two laser systems Er:YAG 2.94 μm and CTH:YAG 2.1 μm were used. The enamel artificial caries were gently removed by laser radiation and flow Sonic fill composite resin was inserted. Scanning electron microscope was use to evaluate the enamel surface.
