LED lighting has many benefits in a medical office and has many advantages over the traditionally praised halogen-bulb lighting, which requires much maintenance and attention. Let’s go over some of the benefits LED lights have over other types of lighting:
LED lighting will not only save you money with your electric use, reducing costs by up to 85%., it will offer substantially more light while using less power than traditional halogen lighting.
LED lights have an average life expectancy of 50,000 hours. If you use your lights for 10 hours a day during the work week, this equates to about 19.2 years of light. Because of their long life, LED lights become the most cost-effective light on the market.
3. Anti-Heat Producing
One of the major benefits for dental professionals is that LED lighting is cool lighting—it does not produce heat. With halogen lighting comes the risk of overheating generated by the infrared spectrum of the emitted radiation.1 This can cause much discomfort for the patient, and a long appointment can also produce tissue desiccation.
4. Stronger, More Consistent Light
LED lights offer a more consistent stream of light, making for better procedures that run more smoothly. Dental professionals are able to see an even splay of light, even in the darkest of cavities.
DentalEZ® currently offers three products that utilize LED technology to help make your practice more effiecient and cost-effective: The Core™ LED Light, the Simplicity™ LED and EverLight®. The Core LED Light boasts three light intensity settings and allows for no-touch operation, making it very conveniant during procedures. The Simplicity LED offers smooth rotation and 3 axis adjustment for a wide range of light positioning. EverLight provides natural daylight illimination to offer clear oral cavity visibility. The product has nine color-intensity settings to help meet all your operative needs and also consumes 70% less energy than traditional halogen lighting.
The choice of switching to the technologically advanced LED lighting is easier than ever—current users can upgrade to Simplicity LED with a retrofit kit. Visit DentalEZ.com/SimplicityLED to learn more.
