Abstract

Innovative technique has been introduced in the field of dentistry for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment. Technologies like laser, composite curing techniques, optical imaging have been utilized in the field of dentistry. OCT(optical coherence tomography) is a recent. technique which creates cross-sectional high resolution images. SS-OCT(Swept -Source optical coherence tomography) is a variant of optical coherence tomography, which provides instant imaging with high resolution, non-invasive and ease of handling. This article provides a overview of Swept -Source OCT and its application in the field of dentistry.
