Sažetak

There are two drawbacks o f standard photopolymerization units: relative inability o f a complete cure o f darker composite shades in premolar and molar regions, and a hazardous effect o f curing light on the eyes o f the dentist. A n argon-ion laser was used as a source for photopolymerization o f several light shade composite resins. The depth o f cure was measured at three different wavelengths (457.9 nm, 476.5 nm and 488.0 nm) and in the laser multiline mode. The depth o f cure measurements was determined with a micrometer. The best results were obtained with a 476.5 nm laser line for Silux composite: more than 3.8 mm in 2 seconds at 155 mW. This arrangement is not suitable for clinical use in the present form, but a low-power compact laser device has been proposed to meet practical requirements.
