Dental Loupe Headlights
Lighting systems that can be mounted to dental loupes can vary greatly between vendors. Attachment options include headbands and clipping onto standard loupes and safety shields. Most operator lights have a cable that connects to a rechargeable battery pack; however, there are a few cordless options on the market. The battery packs for these operator lights often fully charge in 2-5 hours. LED lighting is by far the most popular choice among operator lights for dental loupes. LED lights give cool, white light and last much longer than halogen. Most lamps are lightweight, usually around a ½ ounce; some can even be lighter than ¼ ounce. Light intensity can vary between products, so if there is a specific candlepower you are looking for be sure and inquire. When choosing an operator lamp for dental loupes, illumination, product quality, comfort and ease of use should all be considered.
