LED Technology Expert in Dental LED Technology

Case Description:

An LED technology expert in dental applications was sought for this patent infringement case to review a dental curing LED device. The patent specifically dealt with a dental instrument that was designed to shine an LED light at light-curable compounds (resin), curing the compound within the patient's mouth. The dental curing LED's provided an ultraviolet means of adhesive curing in a dental patient's mouth, rather than via heat or chemicals.

The patented technology dealt in part with how the LED's were mounted within the device itself. The technology was an advancement over traditional LED's with large integral plastic lenses. IMS ExpertServices sought an LED technology expert in designing or using LEDs and semiconductors for curing light-curable compounds to review the mechanical design of the device and consult on the medical applications of LED technology.
