Abstract

The object of study were human teeth with caries cavities and healthy teeth extracted for orthopaedic indications. The main method of study was Raman spectroscopy. We revealed the specific features of Raman spectra for the healthy tooth tissues impaired ones and the tissues affected by caries. The optical criteria are established that allow cares detection and assessment, as well as the detection of pre-caries impairment of the tooth tissues. The results were analysed in comparison with the data of the chemical analysis performed using a raster electron microscope.
