Composite Resin Diastema Closure
A 41-year-old female presented in good health with no contraindications to dental treatment. She had a chief complaint of "old fillings to close my gap." A complete oral examination revealed no significant problems or pathosis, other than her unsightly old single resin restoration wedged between teeth Nos. 8 and 9. There was no contact in which to floss, and there was a large overhang against a blunted papilla. We discussed several options, including orthodontics, veneers, and direct resin. We both preferred the option of direct resin. When this case was done more than a decade ago, I selected...Read More

Powerful and Intuitive: The Elipar S10 LED Curing Light from 3M ESPE
Having a powerful and easy-touse curing light can significantly increase your efficiency. With that in mind, there are several important factors any dentist should consider when shopping for a curing light. The first is wavelength. Since most dental products contain camphorquinone (CPQ) as the photoinitiator, curing lights must offer wavelengths that include 465 nm, the wavelength at which CPQ is activated. The second sign of a good curing light is the ability to accurately distribute the energy at a high intensity; this allows for targeted, one-shot curing. Other factors to consider include tip sizes, price, portability, weight, sturdiness, and look...Read More
Best Curing Light Yet!
I'm a prosthodontist. I was always a Demetron user (38 yrs+). An Orthodontist mentioned this light as the best for brackets. I had a problem with my cordless Demetron that the plastic casing split because the battery snap was too tight and the entire unit had to be replaced! She recommended that I try the Epilar as it is all metal (strong and easy to clean) The battery lasts and lasts between chargings...more than all day! I've never run it out even with an all day bonding case. It has its own light wands that are magnetic and unique. (I needed to buy new.) They are easy to change/rotate and plastic covers work fine. Timer is easy to read and the sound can be turned off! ( I hate beeping noises) All stainless case has helped when it was dropped...no damage. Rubber buttons work fine and are placed so they are easy to operate. My Staff likes that it can be easily wiped where the plastic shield doesn't cover. Charges up fast! The base has a small footprint and has a clean look. 3M put lots of thought into creating this ideal curing light. I own 3 and the old Demetrons have gone to hygiene.
