Ascent OL5 LED Curing Light
Ascent OL5 is easy to use with a low profile, lightweight design, four-timer presets, and a tacking soft cure mode. Access to all areas of the mouth - even the distal surface of third molars - is comfortable for both practitioner and patient.
The wide 10 x 13 mm oval aperture of Ascent OL5 allows for a larger curing diameter than most LED curing lights.
With CAO patented technology, the brand spectrum output of Ascent OL5 cures all photoinitiated curing materials.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between the Ascent PX and the Ascent OL5?
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.
What would I use the Tacking Soft Cure Mode for?
Ascent OL5 is one of the few LED curing lights to implement a tracking 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 the 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.

What cleaning agents are compatible with the Ascent OL5?
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.
What is the Ascent OL5’s depth of cure?
The 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 micro-hybrids, nanohybrids, or nanofills. Curing through ceramic adds more required curing time. The further the distance the light is placed on the material being cured, the longer the curing takes. Refer to the insert included with the curing materials for recommended curing times for best results.
Where do I buy the Ascent OL5?
