Innovations in Dental LED Lighting

In the recent years, dramatic innovations in LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) have enormously effected the quality of light that dentists work under, delivering high quality dental care & enhancing your productivity. The production of an appropriate illuminance level is fundamental as bad illuminance exalts visual acuity, fatigue and enhances considerably the possibility of errors during a surgery.

Let’s segregate your lighting by functions, i.e. ambient lighting & task lighting. While the ambient lighting illuminates the office space, the task lighting is appropriate for dental procedures or tasks. Having said that, lighting plays a pivotal role in well-conceived aesthetics of your interiors, encouraging patient comfort and confidence in your dentistry.

The aim of a dental light is to provide appropriate illumination levels in the treatment area, assuring the professional & patient’s comfort.

The quality of light is important for:

1. Correct visualization of surgical field

2. A true perception of colors

3. Least but not the last for the influence that light plays on the physiological processes of the observer

From a clinical standpoint high quality dental LED lights can be used in all situations in which dentist operates, esp. for:

1. General dentistry work. Reduces eyestrain

2. Colour capture for realization of prosthetic handiwork

3. Determination of colour in bleaching treatment

4. In surgery for visual exactness of difference in hard & soft tissues.

High quality dental lights are characterized by a particular light focusing geometry that allows to obtain a rectangular field of 150 X 75 mm at a particular distance from the source. The studied & researched geometry of reflectors, in combination with each led source allows to realize a luminous flux which is homogeneous, clean & without shadows. The scialytic effect is the result of the superimposition of hundreds of individual light fields which produce a negligible dimming effect in case of a partial lamp covering.

LED emission is without infrared wavelengths (IR). This radiation is responsible for tissue heating and at molecular level UV radiation causes DNA damages. The absence of UV radiations eliminates these problems.
