The treatment area of a dental practice is usually kept in bright, friendly and clean-looking white tones. Glare-free, daylight-like LED lighting with a color temperature of 4,200 to 6,000 Kelvin supports the hygienic impression and offers optimal operating conditions for the practice staff.
The dental operating light works on average with a brightness of 20,000-25,000 lux, modern devices even in the dimming range from 8,000 to 55,000 lux. To avoid the tunnel effect, the hard transition from working to ambient light, the lighting of the entire working environment should be at least 2,000 lux increase.
The recognition of colors and contrasts is crucial for the work precision of the treating practice staff. For successful dental treatment, the artificial working light must come as close as possible to daylight and provide a color rendering index (CRI = Color Rendering Index) of more than 90%.
Flicker-free light for concentrated patient treatment
Working for hours in a dental practice places high demands on the fatigue-free eyesight of the employees. A flicker-free workplace lighting forms an important basis for this. For physical reasons, dimmed LED lights work with pulse width modulation, i. H. they turn on and off every microsecond.
Although not consciously recognizable, the human eye has to counteract this change in light. The higher the frequency, the less strenuous this work is for the eye. Lighting that works at 100 Hz offers optimal light for concentrated treatment. This also guarantees the flicker-free use of camera systems.
