Light guide for the 3M™ Ortholux™ Luminous Curing Light.

Superior strength, durability and hygiene Manufactured from a one-piece, hydroformed stainless steel casing, the high-tech design features a smooth, nearly unbreakable exterior that is easy-to-clean and stain-resistant. The absence of seams or vents protects internal components from contaminants as well as damage from fluids. Fast, precision curing The black-coated, 8 mm light guide contributes to the 1600 mW/cm2² output by optimizing the orthodontic curing pattern for the recommended mesial and distal curing technique or the alternate interproximal curing technique. The black coating of the light guide assures the user that the high-intensity blue light is being directed into the oral cavity and not extraneously throughout the operatory. As a result, the Ortholux™ Luminous curing light can cure ceramic brackets in 3 seconds and metal brackets in 6 seconds, reducing overall bonding time and chair time. Advanced ergonomics Providing a comfortable grip from various angles, the unit’s unique V-shape accommodates any user’s technique, and its small size offers an excellent weight balance. Maneuverability and convenience are further enhanced by a magnetic light guide fixture that allows for quick and easy attachment, removal and positioning of the light guide. Additionally, the eye shield rotates 360° and serves as a flat surface rest for roll-off protection. Intuitive operation The Ortholux Luminous curing light requires no “learning curve.” In addition to simple two-button operation, it features a unique, builtin timer offering 4 preset cure times (3, 6, 9 and 12 seconds), a 1-second tack-cure mode and a 15-second extended cure time. Lithium ion battery for long-lasting, steady power The high-performance Lithium ion battery maintains consistent light output and stores up to twice the power of nickel metal hydride batteries. Also preferred by patients In addition, the Ortholux Luminous curing light provides patients the benefit of ultra-quiet operation. It offers a switch-off option for timer and beep signals, and does not house a noisy fan.
