Raman Spectroscopy of Changes in the Tissues of Teeth with Periodontitis

Diagnostics (Basel). 2020 Oct 28;10(11):876. doi: 10.3390/diagnostics10110876.


The results of experimental studies of the tissues of teeth with periodontitis, using the Raman spectroscopy method, are presented in this work. Spectral changes in the tissues of teeth with periodontitis were identified, and the results can be used for the correction of treatment of this disease in dental practice. Criteria for the noninvasive diagnosis of periodontitis, based on changes in tooth enamel spectral properties, were developed.
