Until now halogen-type lamps could only polymerize by producing a great
deal of heat for a few efficient wavelengths (on average 500mW/cm2 in the
The maximum emitting spectrum of halogen lamps (over 480nm) is not
relevant to the optimal absorption zone of the photo-initiators used in
dentistry (approx. 430 to 470nm).
The latest generation L.E.D. (Light Emitting Diode) curing lights offer all that
is expected of this new technology and the most recent design developed by
Satelec® combines power, efficiency and speed
