Ultradent Products, a developer and manufacturer of dental materials and equipment, has launched the newest edition of its multi-award-winning Valo curing light — the completely redesigned Valo X broadband LED curing light. As Ultradent’s most innovative curing light yet, the Valo X curing light offers the ultimate in engineering and design when it comes to every aspect of the light including durability, power, accessibility, and versatility.
Thanks to its larger 12.5mm lens and new powerful custom LED chip, the Valo X curing light offers a more complete cure than ever before. Its superior features allow clinicians to cure with confidence, and not have to question the capabilities of their light. This includes improved curing depth, beam collimation, and thermal management. The Valo X curing light comes equipped with two power modes (Standard Power and Xtra Power), two diagnostic light modes (black light and white light), as well as the ability to work corded or cordless.
The light’s one-button activation also sports a user interface with an accelerometer, so users can cycle between the light’s power and diagnostic modes with just the wave of the wand, a light drum tap, or the push of a button. This helps reduce mid-procedure fumbling and the likelihood of dropping the light. The Valo X light also comes with five accessory lenses, which further enhance its capabilities. A simplified, low-profile design enables the light’s head to reach posterior restorations with ease.
“We simplified the Valo X curing light even more by making it the only light that allows you to change modes without pushing buttons, thanks to its new accelerometer,” said Neil Jessop, VP of Research and Development at Ultradent. “In fact, it’s engineered so well that it won’t change modes by accident, providing the experience and performance you expect from a Valo curing light.”
Like Ultradent’s other award-winning Valo curing lights, the Valo X curing light is milled from a single bar of aerospace-grade aluminium – a material that improves thermal management, LED longevity, and provides unmatched durability.
