How can I measure the power of curing light?

Traditionally, curing lights are measured with "calibrated" radiometers on the light intensity or power irradicance in mW/cm2 (milliwatt per square centimeter), meaning the power in mW divided by the area of the light exposure in cm2. The radiometer, however, as "calibrated" as the manufacturers claimed, is not an accurate but a relative measurement instrument. The powers measured from radiometers are the irradiance level at the tip of a curing light, which does not indicate the power level received by composite inside a cavity.  Additionally, readings from radiometers vary significantly from their actual values. For example, a light measured on Kerr LED radiometer for 800 mW/cm2 displays 1066 mW/cm2 on Cure Rite, and 1280 mW/cm2 on Radii Radiometer as demonstrated by BlueLight Analytics, who has developed a highly accurate system called MARC that measures light intensity at all distances based on NIST calibrated spectrometer. FUSION Curing Lights are measured using both common radiometer and a precision NIST calibrated spectrometer system to ensure each production unit meets the criteria in our specifications. Because of the low dispersion from the patented FUSION lens system, you can be assured that FUSION delivers similar energy for both anterior and posterior standard restorations and more energy to bonding brackets than other LED lights on the market.

What are the recommeded cleaning procedures?

    a)       FUSION parts are recommended to be cleaned and disinfected with a cleaning solution including Cavicide, Lysol, Isopropyl or Ethyl alcohol. Do not autoclave or ultrasonic.
    b)       Thoroughly wipe clean handpiece, Charging Base and Eyeshield with a soft cloth or tissue damped with the cleaning solution. Do not spray or soak. Disinfecting agents and liquid must not enter any openings on unit in particular Metal keypad.
    c)       Clean curing lens and electrical metal contacts using Q-tips slightly damped (do not soak) with the cleaning solution.
    Safeguard handpiece opening area, metal keypad, charging plug, and lens against liquid and sharp objects as this may cause electrical short-circuit, permanent optical damage or malfunction

How does DOE work?

    Similar to the green fluorescence protein (GFP) that exhibits bright green fluorescence when exposed to blue light in jellyfish, numerous publications [Ref.] in the public domain have established the similar fluorescence in human soft tissue when excited under violet-blue wavelength light.
    Fluorescence from jellyfish is easy to see due to its high quantum efficiency of close to 80% meaning 80% of the excitation light could be converted to the fluorescence emission. However, fluorescence from human soft tissue is much more difficult to observe due to not only lower quantum yield but also broader fluorescence emission.
    DentLight is one of a few companies that achieved such feat in its capability to image soft tissue fluorescence with high resolution and high contrast. The patent-pending DOE design implements the most advanced technology in LED optics for long-range illumination to the back of the throat and high contrast fluorescence optical filters to maximize emission image contrast while suppressing both room and excitation light.Together with its award-winning modular design, DOE delivers to our customers the portable and reliable solutions for complete oral exam.

What are the differences between DOE and other brands?

When you want to count on quality, functionality and performance, DentLight has proven over and over that we deliver the best products on the market. DOE is comparable in working principles to Velscope and Identifi, which all depends on fluorescence imaging as the primary detection mechanism. Yet –
  • DOE is much smaller and portable than Velscope or Identifi enabling detection of back throat imaging which is a common place of problem.
  • DOE has proven integrated rechargeable battery and smart electronics for constant ready exams without the need of changing battery (Identifi) or sleeping mode (Velscope).
  • DOE delivers much higher power LED illumination than Identif similar to Velscope yet integrates passive cooling without the annoying fan noise and reliability headache in the long run.
  • DOE implements patent-pending high contrast optical filter with much better extinction ratio than Identifi yet integrates with magnification loupes for both consistent high resolution imaging and suppression of room light while other brands need to turn off the ambient light.
  • Best of all, DOE is modular and integrates components that can perform a lot more procedures than the other brands including in addition to soft tissue exam: 1) Composite viewing for old composite removal; 2) High-power and guided transillumination for dental caries, fractures, and root canal; 3) Intra-oral Illumination; 4) Bleaching; 5) Optional fast composite curing
  • And what more, the price is right!

I have a FUSION, can I convert to DOE for oral cancer screening?

Yes. With FUSION, you have the options of upgrading to DOE  to perform soft tissue oral exam and oral cancer screening. Simply purchase the FUSION-DOE Starter Kit.

Why do I need a White Light Head and what is an “Exam Tip”?

The DOE full kit comes with a White Light Head for oral illumination and transillumination. FUSION curing light can optionally add-on White Light Head. It accomplishes two goals:
  • Illumination to have side-by-side visual under fluorescence and enhanced white light illumination with the same magnification image
  • Transillumination for hard tissue oral health exam including dental caries, fractures, and root canal.
The Exam Tip (also doubles as a Tacking Tip for veneers/crowns/brackets with curing light head) is a disposable black 3mm opening tip that adapts and snaps into the end of the light head to cut down side light emission and guide the light propagation into a focused filament of light. It enables transillumination into interproximal teeth and improves contrast of visual exams on anterior, posterior and endo root canal.

What is Pulse Mode (Standard LED Power) Mode and when do I use it?

    Press and hold TM/PW Key for 3 seconds to set at Pulse mode (1300mW/cm2). Use this power mode to avoid heat. The matter of fact is, since FUSION is so much advanced and powerful, that the Pulse Mode (Half-power mode) is higher than or equal to actual power outputs of other leading brand LED curing lights with a similar tip size. For example, Demi with 11mm Turbo tip outputs 1100mW/cm2 power*. With its advanced heat cooling and power maintenance technology, FUSION generates minimum heat in Half Power mode and allows continuous operation without any interruptions.
    This mode is also used for extended running in oral exam and bleaching.

How often does the battery need to be replaced and can the light be serviced?

    FUSION is designed using smart Lithium-Ion battery assembly with built-in micro-controller electronics for protection and smart charging. Together with the most reliable connection components with shock absorbing capabilities, it ensures the longest possible service time of close to 5 years in typical clinical uses. More importantly, it helps the clinicians avoid the hassles of dealing with the battery for a long time and offers the most efficiency in a professional environment.  Even in the case of a battery towards its end of life, users can easily replace the battery assembly with its screw-on connection.
    FUSION is modular in construction. User can easily replace the modular parts for field service. The light can be serviced by our manufacturing facility and authorized repair centers.
Early detection of oral cancer can happen at the dentist
