Cordless LED curing unit. J Oral Rehabil ; The intermittent, continuous and exponential light methods supply energy for photo-activation via halogen lamps, and the white light must be filtered to emit only the blue spectrum of the visible light.

Conversely, the intermittent light method employs 2 s of light exposure followed by 2 s without light, meaning that the maximum kknoop intensity peak is achieved every time that the light is emitted. However, the real advantages vureza these techniques are not yet totally known. Five readings were taken for each region and the arithmetic means were calculated for each region of the specimen.

Reduced light energy density decreases post-gel contraction while maintaining degree of conversion in composites. However, the depth of cure value was lower than that obtained by methods that employ halogen lamps. Harrington E, Wilson HJ. Effect of djreza wavelength on polymerization of light-cured resins. However, characteristics such as composition, light intensity and exposure time can modify the final properties of the material and, thus, restrict the clinical applications.


Knoop indentations are about dursza.

Temperature transmission of high-output light-curing units through dentin. Since the polymerization process seems more dependent on the total energy available for photo-activation than the light intensity property 8, 17this method may provide a higher amount of energy to the material, which may explain the higher depth of cure values achieved using the intermittent method.

Influence of light intensity on polymerization shrinkage and integrity of restoration-cavity interface. The light-activated composite resins, brought into practice in the ‘s, introduced expressive changes that made their satisfactory application in posterior teeth possible. Uno S, Asmussen E. This heat transmission to the material may be, in part, responsible for kniop higher depth of cure values achieved using these methods, because the heat may increase the mobility of the monomers, increasing the probability of the occurrence of conversion.

Eur J Oral Sci ; However, this higher intensity may result in greater polymerization shrinkage and greater marginal leakage 5.

Finishing and polishing were then performed with sandpaper of decreasing grits of, and The PAC method employs a different technology in which the light is produced by two electrodes that are placed very close to each other, emitting light when a high voltage is applied knolp than duresa heating a tungsten filament as a halogen lamp However, the intermittent light revealed a higher hardness value than the exponential technique.

The accuracy of the conversion depends on the accuracy of the provided data and the resulting kniop, and on the valid ranges spanned by the different hardness tests. The hardness value is above the acceptable range of the particular hardness scale.

Another factor that may have influenced the depth of cure and caused the difference between the intermittent light and the continuous and exponential methods is the total amount of energy supplied to the composite for the polymerization.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the depth of cure and Knoop hardness in the P60 composite resin photo-activated using different methods. Determination of radiation energy emitted by light activation units. The composite was then covered with a polyester strip and pressed with a glass slab to accommodate the material into the matrix.


Knoop hardness test

durezx This result demonstrates that despite the particular characteristics of each method, the light intensity and the exposure time were enough to adequately polymerize this thickness of composite. To generate blue light, the lamps must be heated to very high temperatures 14resulting in the emission of heat through the curing light tip 15, After opening the matrix, the uncured material was removed with a steel spatula and the polymerized composite was measured using a pachymeter.

Again, the probable explication for this occurrence may be the total amount of energy supplied to the camphoroquinone, even at great depth. According to Peutzfeldt et al. According to Sakaguchi and Berge 8maximum light intensity is achieved at 0.

At this depth, the continuous light method presented an intermediate value with no statistical difference from the other methods. How to cite this article.

With respect to the organic matrix, the nature of the dureaz monomer molecules and the degree of conversion obtained in composite resin has an important effect upon mechanical properties 3where the higher durwza of cure will improve the final properties of the material.

The spectral output of gallium nitride blue LED falls conveniently within the absorption spectrum of the camphoroquinone photo-initiator nm presented in most light-activated composite resins, thus no filters are required in LED light curing units 12,
