Abstract

The surface modification of root dentin strongly depends on the laser parameters applied. We conclude that the optimum wavelengths for laser treatment of root surface caries are lambda = approximately 9.0 or approximately 9.7 microm, corresponding to the absorption peak due to P-O stretching.
