Successful photo-curing of dental composites depends on many factors including: the light transmission characteristics of the composition, the light source intensity, spectral output and exposure time. Recently, high intensity LED lights have entered the clinical world with the “hopeful promise” of providing faster, deeper curing to reduce steps and save time. Concurrently, several bulk-curing composites with reduced shrinkage stress have also been introduced to reduce the number of increments during placement.

What are the potential clinical implications of light curing larger composite increments for shorter times with higher intensity lights? What are some of the practical strategies that can ensure an effective and reproducible clinical outcome? This CE webinar will provide you with some surprising and useful clinical guidance on enhancing your photocuring success.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will be able to: Understand many of the factors that affect the success of light-curing dental composites; understand the clinical implications of light curing; Identify the practical strategies that will help ensure a successful clinical outcome   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
