Did you know that one of the most common reasons to get eye stress, feeling tired or getting headaches at work is related to incorrect lighting? For demanding professions within dentistry where precision is crucial, lighting without flicker, glare or shadows is important – and not to mention: correct luminance and colour rendering. But how do you find optimal dental lighting? We have listed our best tips below!
If you work as a dentist, you have probably noticed that your eyes are constantly forced to switch between the strong lighting from the examination lamp and the soft surrounding light. On average, this happens around 1000 times per working day, which can be tiring for the eyes. This is also confirmed by medical studies that have shown that having to switch between different luminance in a room can generate headaches, eye stress and fatigue.
With this information as a starting point, how do you create optimal lighting in demanding workplaces like dental clinics. And what other aspects are good to consider when choosing dental lighting? Check out our top tips below:
With dental lighting from us at D-TEC, you can be sure to include all the tips in our checklist above. In addition to designing our lamps so that they don’t generate any shadows, flicker or glare, we also offer a function that lowers the contrast to the rest of the room through indirect light.
Our lamps are ready to provide you with light with perfect colour rendering, without any glare, flickering or shadows. They are adapted for demanding environments such as dental clinics and laboratories, where optimal lighting is extra important. The luminaires have an optimal brightness of 3000-5000 lux and give you a perfect colour rendering, CRI94. Our normal colour temperature is 5700 K, but you can also choose dynamic light on several of our models. This means that you can change the colour temperature and also simulate daylight with the help of a timer. The change of lighting often results in a better ability to concentrate, a better night’s sleep and an increased overall well-being. The following models have the dynamic function: Cloud, Clair and Brite Triton.
Do you want dental lighting that stands out from the crowd? Our lamp model Cloud offers a fantastic colour panel with clouds floating by, and displays all the colours of the rainbow. The colour panel is a great option that makes your clinic unique, and can also relax patients with e.g. dental fear. It will also work as an entertaining feature for children and can help to create a positive experience of their visit. Don’t be surprised if the children start asking when it’s time to go back to the dentist again!
Several of our luminaires have an indirect upward light that provides a better working condition, since it reduces the contrast between the working light and the surrounding light in the room. The indirect light also creates a more pleasant environment for the patient.
Thanks to the built-in, high-quality LED modules, we have e.g. been able to seal our lamp constructions, which means that dirt and bacteria can’t get in – making our lamps close to maintenance-free.
