The performance of six dental ultraviolet (u.v.) sources was assessed to establish minimum output requirements and possible u.v. hazards. Exposure criteria for u.v.-cured materials (Nuva-seal P.A., Nuva-cote P.A., Nuva-fil P.A., Lee-seal, u.v.-Dentoseal, Uviobond, Visiobond) were assessed by determining setting time-intensity characteristics, u.v. transmission and microhardness as a function of u.v. intensity and depth. A minimum intensity of 10 mW cm-2 was required for adequate curing and both… CONTINUE READING
