Light Curing is a complex issue. Curing lights vary by spectrum and intensity while curing times vary for adhesives and cements. In addition, varying tooth shades and incremental thicknesses require different curing requirements. Infection Control can alter light quality, and different photo-initiators and composite/tooth transmission can require various lengths of curing time. Incorrect use of the curing light can result in debonding, fracturing and discoloration as well as post-operative sensitivity, pain and escalation in care. Demystify your light and resin requirements using both quantifiable and quantitative measurements to assess that your light is being used to it’s full potential.
• Enhance your knowledge base of the clinical importance of proper light curing
• Evaluate the key components to establish an efficient curing technique with LED curing lights for you and your staff
• Learn about new technology to accurately determine and monitor how your light interacts with the composites you use in your office every day
