The Ascent OL5® comes to you from the originator of the LED curing light with 15 years of solid performance. CAO Group is a world leading innovator and manufacturer of high-technology dental products and equipment in West Jordan, UT. The corded power ensures optimal light output without worry of diminishing battery output in the middle of a procedure.
Ascent OL5 is easy to use with 4 timer presets and tacking soft cure mode. The lightweight, slim, low-profile and simple design is easy to use. Access to all areas of the mouth even the distal of third molars is a comfortable experience for both practitioners and patients.
Ascent OL5’s wide aperture allows for a larger curing diameter than most of the LED curing lights on the market. The tip containing 5 LEDs cures from several angles at the same time with its 10 x 13 mm oval footprint. Like all CAO LED curing lights, our patented technology completely cures all photoinitiators used in dentistry today with broad dual spectrum light in the 377-490nm wavelengths.
The Ascent OL5 Cures All Photoinitiated Curing Materials
Both the Ascent PX and the Ascent OL5 are exceptional curing lights. The Ascent OL5 light intensity is >800mW/cm2 and the Ascent PX has up to >2000mW/cm2. The Ascent PX is cordless and has a 360° rotating head. The Ascent OL5 is corded for reliable and consistent output. Both are excellent curing lights and effectively cure all photoinitiators.
Ascent OL5 is one of the few LED curing lights to implement a tacking mode. In this mode a clinician is able to set the light for cure times of 1, 2, 3 or 4 seconds. This allows for composites and adhesives to only briefly cure or tack after each layer of composite or adhesive is placed. After all layers of composite have been placed and final anatomy and finishing are complete, a final cure of 20 seconds on each buccal, lingual, and occlusal surface will achieve complete polymerization, resulting in a more wear-resistant surface.
Ascent OL5 LED Curing Light (001-00018) Contains:
1 Curing Light Handpiece with Cord
1 100 - 240 V Power Supply Unit (attached)
Disposable Barrier Sleeves
Replacement 250pk barrier sleeves are sold separately (001-00057)
The Ascent OL5 Curing Light is sealed so it can be surface cleaned and disinfected using an appropriate disinfectant towelette or cloth soaked in surface disinfectant. Below is a list of suggested surface disinfectants:
• Chlorhexidine gluconate
• 70% Isopropyl alcohol
DO NOT use harsh abrasives. DO NOT autoclave or otherwise sterilize these components.
Depth of cure is dependent on a number of factors that are less dependent on the light used and more on the materials. Darker color resins require more curing time. Curing thin layers of restorative material or bonding agents requires less time. Microfills require more curing time than microhybrids, nanohybrids, or nanofills. Curing through ceramic adds more required curing time. The distance the light is placed from the material being cured, the longer the curing takes. Refer to the insert included with the cure materials for recommended curing times for best results.
The Ascent OL5 is exclusively available through Henry Schein.
