Abstract:

The Exposure Reciprocity theory has been utilized by light-curing unit manufacturers to justify marketing products featuring increased light intensity to decrease overall cure time. Several high intensity units on the market claim 1-3 second cure times for a 2mm cure depth. Curing at manufacturer recommended times may produce under-curing while repeated exposures may cause thermal pulpal damage.
