STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Issues regarding the use of composite preheating need to be investigated so that the clinician will better understand the variables associated with this method. PURPOSE To examine the multiple aspects of use of a commercial composite preheating device (Calset, AdDent Inc., Danbury, CT, USA). MATERIALS AND METHODS Temperature values of three heating units and composite compules were obtained using a K-type thermocouple and were recorded digitally in real time. The… CONTINUE READING
