SPRING LAKE, Mich.—Ascentcare Dental Products, a dental products company focused on creating innovative dental technologies, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent 10,350,027, which covers illuminated dental instruments using magnetically coupled fiber optic bulk lighting. 

Problems with traditional light sources in dentistry have created a demand for a solution. Overhead lighting and loupes can be cumbersome, require a high level of maintenance and constant adjustment, and don't always provide light where it is needed. Fiber optic lighting solves many of the challenges dentists face while working in small, dark and inaccessible places. Due to the ability to transfer high amounts of light through a small cable, this advanced technology provides intense and focused illumination directly inside the patient’s mouth.  

The issuance of this most recent patent covers several of the instruments developed by Ascentcare that use fiber optics to provide intense illumination in hard to reach places. Using a strong light engine and a flexible, magnetically coupled fiber optic cable, Ascentcare offers many instruments that solve the problem of intraoral lighting. These instruments include an illuminated dental mirror, transillumination tool, lighted saliva ejector tube holder and intraoral light.
