Paper Abstract

The effect of redistribution of halogen light source intensity by hard dental tissues is presented. The study was performed on extracted intact molars. Commercially available lamp for light-cured materials was used as halogen light source. The spatial distribution of radiation was registered by CCD camera. The effect of redistribution of halogen light source intensity is caused by waveguide-scattering properties of dentin. This effect may be observed in case of irradiation of light-cured material through hard dental tissues.
