Managing Accurate Resin Curing
I have built world-leading expertise in the design, evaluation and use of the dental curing lights used to harden dental resins. My research has shown that four discrete variables determine the effective use of curing lights in clinical practice. “The Four Variables” are: 1) the curing light design, 2) the operator technique, 3) the restoration characteristics and location, and 4) the energy requirements of the particular brand and shade of resin being used.
