Development of a diagnostic tool for dentists for the measurement of tooth fuorisation

Project: PHD

Description

The research consists in the development of diagnosis tool for dentists which allows them to measure, by Raman scattering, the fluoride concentration in dental enamel. Also, we have to understand the incorporation process of fluoride in dental enamel when it undergoes a treatment which combines fluoride gel and laser irradiation in order to act preventively against tooth decay.
