Postoperative sensitivity in Class V composite restorations: Comparing soft start vs. constant curing modes of LED


BACKGROUND One of the major disadvantages associated with using composites is polymerization shrinkage; stresses are generated at the margins, and if these stresses exceed the bond strength, microleakage occurs at the tooth restoration interface which causes ingress of cariogenic bacteria, post-operative sensitivity, and secondary caries. LED offers several… (More)
