Fourier Transform infrared/Raman spectroscopy and microscopy are highly valuable for conducting research on dental applications. In this chapter, the structural characterization of dentin and enamel, the biophysical and biochemical changes induced by diseases, diagnosis of dental caries, dentin-enamel junction (DEJ), effects of dental etchants on teeth and adhesive/dentin interface are reviewed.
