NEWS & EVENTS COVER STORY YOUR BUSINESS YOUR LIFE ADVERTORIAL PRODUCT GUIDE Dental units product guide T he transition to LED dental lighting from more traditional quartz-halogen bulb-style lighting is an increasing trend in the surgery environment. If you are considering new surgery lighting, research shows there are a number of compelling reasons for selecting the latest LED operatory light over halogen or other lighting systems. Below are extracts from a compre- hensive white paper on LED lighting systems, which provides an overview of the advantages of this new technol- ogy. Following years of research A-dec has produced an award winning LED operatory light that combines the many advantages of LED lighting with a unique fluid positioning system for superior ergonomics. More Light with Less Power LEDs are far more efficient at produc- ing light. Technology has advanced to the point where it is possible to get substantially more light from a lot less power. A typical bulb-style dental light requires approximately 100W to deliver 24,000Lux. By contrast, an LED-based light can deliver 25% more light at one- fifth of the required power (more than a 75% energy saving). Further, the trend toward more efficient LEDs will con- tinue into the foreseeable future. While dentists are unlikely to sacrifice light performance simply to reduce energy consumption, dentists appreciate the reduced energy expenses as well as the sustainability benefits. Long life with No Bulb replacement Even the best bulbs have a limited life and will eventually fail – often during a procedure. The result is a recur- ring cycle of lost productivity and expense. LED light, by contrast offers the very real potential of operating without failure over the entire life of the product, an estimated 40,000 hours of use over 20 years. This is especially true when the light is designed with robust thermal management and bal- anced power regulation. Additionally, light emitting diodes are inherently more robust and resistant to shocks than incandescent bulbs. No Radiant Heat LED-based lights do not produce heat, which means there is no “heat lamp effect”. This helps prevent the dental team from perspiring while working in their personal protective equipment, such as gloves, glasses, mask and gown. The result is a more comfort- able and productive work environment. This is particularly significant in larger clinics or institutional settings where many lights are operating in close proximity. The BTUs produced by halogen-style lights can significantly raise room temperature causing dis- comfort for the dental team. Further Dental lighting Applications LEDs offer the potential to more effectively support applications such as lighting during application of composite restora- tions, deliver more light more efficiently and improve ergonomic positionability. POSTSCRIPT: Which light to buy? The innovative A-dec LED operatory light represents a true paradigm shift in surgery lighting and has been immedi- ately recognised as such by the indus- try. Since its release the LED has been awarded a Silver International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) for Medical & Scientific Products, the international ‘Red Dot’ award for design, the coveted ‘Editor’s Choice’ Award from influential US publication, The Dental Advisor, and New Product of the Year from the American Association of Women Den- tists (AAWD).
