Explanation:
"Sono in continua espansione in odontoiatria i materiali che induriscono mediante fotoattivazione, per cui la lampada fotopolimerizzante diventa uno strumento sempre più usato. Diverse ricerche hanno testato gli apparecchi in uso presso gli studi odontoiatrici, trovandone molti inadeguati a ottenere una polimerizzazione ottimale."

\"THE LIGHT CURE UNIT
The basic piece of dental equipment that has made esthetic and cosmetic dentistry possible, is the light cure unit. This device as we all know is used for photoactivation i.e. initiating polymerisation (curing) of light cure and dual cure resin based dental composite restorative materials and cements.

Principle of Working: The device uses visible light in the 460-470 nanometer(nm) range to which the photoinitiator, an alpha-diketone in the composite resin is sensitive and thus, initiates the light reaction of about 20 seconds wherein initial polymerisation occurs.\"
