Laser fluorescence of dentin caries covered with a novel nano-filled sealant

Lasers in Medical Science, 04/13/2012

Employing the experimental nano–filled sealant, laser fluorescence measurements for caries detection can be performed through thicker sealant layers compared to conventional sealant materials. Thus, it might be possible to use this material to assess a caries progression underneath the sealant and administer an appropriate therapy in due time.
