Woodpecker Curing Light - JMU DENTAL

How to Choose a Curing Light for Your Dental Practice?

Before you can choose the ideal curing light for your dental practice, it is essential that you know what use will be intended for it. You must be very clear about what type of composites you will be working with in order to know the technical requirements to be considered during the choice.

According to Alejandro when you buy your curing light you should consider the following:

1. Intensity

The more intensity the lamp can offer you, the better, as it will give us more possibilities to polymerize the composites at a greater depth. In high-end lamps, it is also interesting that low intensities can be reached because it will allow us to adapt to more needs of each clinical case or treatment.

2. Wavelength Amplitude

What interests us is that the lamp can offer us the widest possible range of wavelengths to adapt to the optimal wavelengths of each type of composite and be able to use it with the maximum number of resins possible..

Although you know that you always work with the same types of composite, you can buy a lamp that you know reaches the necessary wavelength well and you don't need it to have a very wide wavelength range..

3. Polymerization Programs

Today, it is normal for all lamps to incorporate at least 3 different programs to polymerize in different ways according to treatment needs::

  • Ramp Up: Progressive increase in intensity..
  • Staggered: Alternation between 0 and maximum intensity.
  • Constant maximum power level.

The high-end lamps can incorporate more types of programs and functions, such as the detection of caries by blue light.

4. Lamp Design

Although this aspect can be very subjective, it is important that the lamp has a good design to transmit a sense of modernity, cleanliness and technology to our patients. It is also very important to take into account the the weight and ergonomics of the curing light lamp..

5. Wired or Wireless Lamps

Nowadays almost all lamps are wireless which offers great working comfort. However, when choosing a lamp, the durability of the battery and the duration of the charge must be taken into account.
