Enhancing the Clinical Armamentarium

The dental marketplace is always progressing; new materials and technologies are developed in a steady stream of innovation. Here, Inside Dentistry offers snapshots of some of the new products arriving on the scene.

A. DENTALEZ® EVERLIGHT™

DentalEZ® Group, a supplier of innovative products and services for dental health professionals worldwide, is pleased to introduce an alternative to halogen-based operatory lights. The new everLight™ LED operatory light provides color-corrected lighting, precise light pattern, and energy efficient features. The LED everLight provides energy-efficient features simply not possible using traditional halogen lighting. The everLight encompasses a long life of 30,000-plus hours, 10 times longer than halogen, reducing the need for regular replacement of light bulbs. everLight uses less than 35 W of energy, 70% less than halogen-based systems. No reflector or fan is required for the ultra-quiet everLight, since it is 100% true direct LED lighting and remains at a consistent, cool temperature. everLight is equipped with nine temperature/intensity settings to meet all your operative needs. Its superior LED technology provides natural daylight illumination and a precise light pattern, which results in clear oral cavity visibility and exact color matching. Also, the everLight’s LED composite setting will not cause pre-maturing on composite materials. The new innovative design of the everLight is ergonomically equipped with a standard third-axis rotation, allowing limitless positioning for optimal illumination, and is easily installed in six mounting configurations.
