How to check your curing light
A reliable and successful treatment result is the most important issue in the dental everyday practice. This also includes that dental materials have to be completely polymerized. In order to guarantee this, the light intensity of the curing device has to be correct.
Conventional radiometers offer only little help
Conventional radiometers often allow a limited check of the light intensity of the curing device only. The reason for this are diverse technical limitations, such as the strictly defined diameter of the light measuring cell. As a rule, only approximate values are measured for each type of device (halogen, plasma, LED etc.). Owing to this fact, conventional radiometers can only be used for a relative light measurement or for checking the consistency of the light intensity.
Trust is a good thing, but control is better! Test your curing light! This video shows you how it works.
Easy and precise handling: Bluephase Meter II
Bluephase Meter II is the only radiometer, which measures the light intensity of the curing devices, regardless of their design. With Bluephase Meter II, the light intensity of Bluephase Style can be regularly and reliably checked. In comparison to the gold standard, the Ulbricht sphere, the deviation in measurement is only + 10 per cent. If this radiometer is consistently used in daily practice treatments, the long-term success of direct and indirect restorations will be enhanced.
