    Author(s): Hussein Sami Abdullah* and Aisha Aram Qasim

    Background: This study aims to investigate the efficacy of ER, CR: YSGG laser combined with functionalized tricalcium phosphate (fetch) exclusively from Cilantro White Varnish in preventing of enamel caries. Materials and Methods: Freshly extracted fifty sound upper first premolars teeth were divided into five groups, each group of ten samples. Group (C): only washed with deionized water. Group (V): functionalized tricalcium phosphate (fTCP) exclusively from Clinpro White Varnish. Group (L1): Er,Cr:YSGG laser (0.25watt, 2.8 J/cm2, 20 Hz, 11% air, 0% water) was irradiated. Group (V/L1): First Cilantro White varnish was applied then Er,Cr:YSGG laser. Group (L1/V): Er,Cr:YSGG laser was irradiated followed by Clinpro White varnish. Then, the pH cycling model was used to induce artificial caries. The effect was studied using Vickers microhar.. Read More»
