The need for a reliable and effective curing light has grown as resin composites and light-cured materials such as sealants and adhesives have grown in popularity. Today the dental curing light is a key part of any dental practice’s armamentarium. While early curing lights used UV wavelengths, the technology has shifted to visible wavelengths with LED and halogen lights the most common today. Both cordless and plug in options are available, and the current generation of dental curing lights offer clinicians a choice of body style, construction and most importantly, the materials the light is capable of curing.
What Types of Curing Light Systems Are Available?
Dental curing lights are most often categorized by the types of light they use for curing. Halogen Curing Lights use blue light wavelengths between 400 and 500 nm, and because these lights generate heat, they often feature cooling fans. LED curing lights are quickly becoming the most common type of light. These lights use LEDs which provide a wide array of wavelengths for curing a variety of material types. They generate less heat than halogen lights and rarely require a cooling fan. Plasma Curing Lights are another option designed for high speed curing. Along with the different types of curing lights, you also can consider different curing tips to allow your light to reach different areas of the mouth and cure different restoration sizes. Another consideration is light meter used to ensure your curing light remains calibrated to your chosen frequency.
