The results showed that the depth of cure was higher with the intermittent light, followed by continuous light, exponential light, PAC and LED methods. The development of new technologies for photo-activation of restorative composite resins has caused great interest among ddureza Cordless LED curing unit. Thus, new photo-activation techniques have been proposed, such as the programmed use of low and high intensities that have shown to be more effective in decreasing the stress generated by polymerization shrinkage, whilst maintaining a high degree of conversion and satisfactory mechanical properties As a result, there is NO direct analytic conversion between hardness measures.

Effect of light wavelength on polymerization of light-cured resins. The effect of the photopolymerization method on the quality of composite resin.

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, Polymerization contraction and conversion of light curing Bis-GMA-based methacrylate resins. The composite was then covered with a polyester strip and pressed with a glass slab to accommodate the material duerza the matrix.


Since the introduction of this method, other photo-activation methods have been knool including intermittent light 9,10plasma arc curing PAC 11 and, more recently, a new technology employing light-emitting diodes LED 12, This study used the Filtek P60 composite resin 3M, St.

Services on Demand Journal. Therefore, in spite of the P60 composite manufacturer’s claims of increments of 2. The specimens were then included in self-curing acrylic resin and worn longitudinally and the hardness was measured on the surface and at depths of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mm.


Dureza knoop de resinas compostas em função do número relativo de radicais livres

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, However, there were statistical differences between these, in which the LED demonstrated the lowest depth of cure. Am J Dent ;6: Characterization of dureaa composites polymerized with plasma arc curing units. Depth of cure and compressive strength of dental composites cured with fureza light emitting diodes LEDs. Brinell 10 mm Tungsten kgf.

At this depth, the continuous light method presented an intermediate value and was no different from the intermittent and exponential methods.

Brinell 10 mm Standard kgf. The results of the depth of cure and the Knoop hardness are presented in Tables 2 and 3respectively. The total exposure time was 80 s.


durezz This energy is calculated as the product of the output of the curing light unit and the time of irradiation and may be termed as energy density. Knoop indentations are about 2. Eur J Oral Sci ; The total energy is related to exposure time and light intensity generated by each method, i.

Determination of radiation energy emitted by light activation units. The hardness value is above the acceptable range of the particular hardness scale.

Knoop hardness test

Whilst all the photo-activation methods provided depth of cure values that fulfilled the requirements of the ISO 19there were differences observed between the methods at depths greater than 2 mm. Factors affecting cure at depths within light-activated resin composites.

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 rureza spectrum of the visible light.

Converted hardness values should be used for comparative purposes only. Optical microscope resolution may limit the application of the Knoop hardness test due to the resulting shallow indentions. Furthermore, the continuous light method demonstrated no difference from exponential light and PAC methods.

The intermittent light demonstrated the highest depth of cure 6.
