Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate light-curing composites polymerization quality (monomer/polymer) carried out at different times and distances of irradiation through the thermal analysis (TG-DTA). Samples have been polymerized at 20, 40 and 60 s (0-2-4-6-8 mm) through a constant polymerization and subsequently analysed by TG-DTA. The TG/DTA analysis shows that different light-curing times and different distance of irradiation affect the quality of polymerization; it is necessary to increase the curing time when the irradiation distance is longer than 2 mm.
