Dental light bulbs include an array of types, styles and brands. The most important and vital dental light bulbs are operating lights or dental operatory lights. These are needed in every advanced dental practice. Something as simple as lightning the oral cavity can actually make or break the success of a dentist. Operatory lights are permanently mounted to the ceiling, cabinet, wall or delivery system and have a variety of swing arm options. These dental lights are powered by either halogen or LED technology and are adjustable to the needs of the dentist, hygienist and assistant. This allows for very bright focused light when needed with low energy usage. When choosing a light for your operating room, ensure it works with your delivery system, fits in your cabinetry and check to see if your preferred position during procedures is compatible with your style. Different lights have different color temperatures and lux (light intensity ratings), so be sure these are compatible with the rest of your lighting. Common brands include Belmont, New Vector, and Dentamerica.
