Adequate and effective lighting is essential to the dental industry, and is necessary for the proper completion of several critical procedures. That’s why DentalEZ offers three unique products that offer clear, well-lit illumination of the oral cavity for when you need it most.

New EverLight® CRI

DentalEZ was the first in the industry to bring 100% direct LED lighting to the dental operatory when the EverLight was introduced. DentalEZ® is now offering an improved version of the EverLight LED with a CRI increase of 23%*, improving ideal vision and color matching.  

EverLight Features:

  • 9 color/intensity settings
  • Consumes up to 70% less energy than halogen
  • 10x longer lifespan than halogen

*Average improvement percentage on all settings.

CORE™ LED

Designed with simplicity in mind, the CORE Light is another of DentalEZ’s innovations in operatory lighting.

CORE Light Features: 

  • No-touch operation
  • 3 adjustable light intensity settings: 30,000, 20,000, and 10,000 lux
  • Rectangular light focus
  • Magnetic handles that are removable, autoclavable, and can be repositioned 360ᵒ
  • Kelvin Color Temperature range of 5500ᵒ-6300ᵒ
  • Removable lens for easy cleaning

 

Simplicity® Halogen

Last but certainly not least is the Simplicity Halogen Light, which uses shadow-free illumination technology to light the oral cavity, the light pattern integrity of the Simplicity Light provides consistent illumination with minimal shadows, even with obstruction by the dental team.

Simplicity Halogen Features:

  • Aluminum casting light frame for better aesthetics and durability
  • Ergonomically designed T-handles for ease of movement.
  • Ability to focus 20-40 inches from the shield
  • Longer flex arm that allows for a wide range of positioning

At DentalEZ®, we pride ourselves on providing some of the best possible products in the dental industry. The StarDental® 430 Series of high-speed handpieces has been our best seller over the past several years, and each piece within this series is equipped with many innovative technologies that set them above the rest. These technologies include a ceramic bearing turbine that is harder and lighter than stainless steel; steam resistant solid glass rod fiber optics; and a small head design that improves accessibility, visibility, and speed. Overall, this series of handpieces is geared toward increasing efficiency, speed, and ease while maintaining quality and integrity.

Last year, we introduced the latest model in this line of revolutionary products, known as the 430 Torque. Ergonomically designed with a stylish satin finish, the 430 Torque delivers both power and choice to the user. An Independent Study conducted by The Dental Advisor resulted in the 430 Torque displaying the highest watts of power at 27 watts and maximum power output when compared to competing brands.

 In addition to the small head, ceramic bearing turbine, and option of fiber optics, the 430 Torque comes with several other attributes that contribute to its success. Dual air drive control produced by the double bucket rotor design maximizes airflow to the turbine and delivers powerful performance, while the unique vortex washer is designed to minimize debris “suck back” into housing and prevent damage. The unique dual beam bifurcated glass design prevents shadowing in front of the bur, and the co-axial water spray optimizes the direction of spray and water pressure, cooling the bur and flushing the operatory site. Finally, the 100% stainless steel body provides a durable instrument and ensures the long-lasting benefits of the 430 Torque.

Light Up Their Teeth, Not Their Eyes

The best dental light is one that allows you to see true colors, does not interfere with bonding procedures, and does not blind your patient. 

A crisp, concise light pattern with a defined edge is the calling card of a quality dental light. Cool-burning, long-life LED bulbs balanced to daylight color temperature between 5,500 degrees to 6,300 degrees Kelvin Color Temperature provide lighting that does not distort colors.

 The Benefits of LED Lights

Traditional light bulbs burn out quickly and emit heat. Colors are not true, making it difficult to match shades when necessary. Some traditional bulbs have poor focus, creating uneven lighting with dark and bright spots.

LED lighting, besides being more energy efficient, has a number of benefits that overcome the problems of traditional light bulbs.

  • No filament to break down or “burn out.”
  • LEDs produce less heat.
  • LEDs are brighter per watt of energy applied.
  • LED lifespan exceeds 50,000 hours

Taking Care of Hygiene

As in any medical office, your dental equipment requires regular sanitizing. The dental light should be designed for easy cleaning with the appropriate antibacterial solutions or heat.

For example, DentalEZ’s CORETM light has magnetically attached handles that can be removed and autoclaved. You can also remove the lens for cleaning with the appropriate solution.

Another innovation available on many lights is the ability to adjust the light intensity without touching the light itself. Hands-free light adjustment reduces the need to press touch pads or dimmer switches with contaminated latex gloves.

To answer ergonomic concerns, you should not need to shift or stand to turn your dental light on and off, nor strain to shift the light focus.

Intensity and Focus

LED lights typically come in arrays, eliminating the need for a special reflector within the lamp assembly and providing direct lighting to the operating field. As mentioned above, the light intensity on the CORE dental light can be adjusted with a hands-free sensor to 10,000, 20,000, and 30,000 lux.

For the best focus, your light should move 360 degrees and provide a crisp, rectangular light focus that does not stray into the patient’s eyes.

Appropriate lighting is essential to precision dentistry. Use as much care selecting a dental light as you do for your next drill.

If you are interested in learning more about the CORE delivery unit or any item in the CORE dental operatory, please visit www.dentalez.com/CORE, where you can view a video, download literature and schedule a CORE™ demo.

“Repetitive strain injuries are on the rise in dentistry. Many dentists/dental hygienists have been diagnosed with an MSD, and a majority have experienced some type of musculoskeletal pain in their shoulders and neck, hands and wrists, low back, or forearms and elbows.”
Colin Graham, Employer Ergonomic Services

A patient is in your chair for a brief time. You and your assistants are bent over the patient chair for hours every day. The patient goes home with no pain while yours grows with every movement you make because of the stress and strain on your body. It may be time to select a more ergonomic patient chair … for you, not your patients.

The patient’s comfort is an important aspect of their experience. However, you and your technicians must have easy access to the patient’s head without straining.

How to Select the Right Patient Chair and Dental Stool

The patient chair you choose can make a big difference to your body.

  • Make sure the patient chair, dentist’s stool, and delivery system align with the height of the dentist.
  • The height and backrest of the patient chair should remain neutral during procedures.
  • The patient chair should be lowered and reclined so the dentist can move freely without striking knees or thighs.
  • A small, thin headrest and narrow upper backrest allow the dentist to maintain a neutral posture and remain close to the patient. 

 All seating in the operatory must align with the dentist’s stature to prevent injury. A patient chair with adequate swivel rotation and lift allows you to get close to the patient’s head while maintaining good posture. Your knees are free to move without striking the chair frame.

 Durable Design

A quality patient chair is set on a hydraulic cantilever system and is made of a heavy-duty cast iron body. Weight is reduced with an aluminum cast chair back, base, armrest, and headrest. The back is wide, narrowing to the articulated headrest for access to the patient. The headrest is double-articulating that easily adjusts to the patient’s head. Armrests flip down so the patient can easily enter and exit the chair.

The CORE chair has a 30-degree arc of swivel, 15 degrees to the left and right of center. Control is through foot control or touch-pad, with programmable preset positions. Upholstery is a comfortable, easily cleaned material, such as Naugahyde, in a relaxing color to complement your operatory.  

The patient chair is the foundation, if you will, of comfort for your patients. However, the chair must fit you too so your practice continues to thrive.

 If you are interested in learning more about the CORE chair please visit www.dentalez.com/CORE, where you can view a video, download literature and schedule a CORE™ demo.
