Annotation. The results of experimental studies of healthy tooth tissue and tooth tissues during caries disease are presented. Features of Raman spectrum of tooth tissues during caries disease are obtained: the main changes are detected at wavenumbers 956 cm -1 .1069 cm -1 , corresponding to phosphates, and 1241 cm -1 , 1660 cm -1 , corresponding to collagen III and collagen I, respectively. Were introduced criteria allowing to detect caries and to identify weakening of tooth tissues, preceding
