Annotation:  Researchers analyze and improve all stages of caries treatment, possible errors, leading to negative consequences. In our opinion, one of these stages of caries treatment, which requires more in-depth study, is the curing process of the fillings, in particular, light sources that initiate the curing of the photocomposite. Light emitters, quite cope with the task of polymerization of seals and justify, in the physical and technical aspect, its purpose. However, subsequent post-mortem complications actualize morphological studies, with an analysis of changes in morphological parameters of the tooth under the influence of light emitters in the treatment of caries. In this paper we present the results of a comparative analysis of the effect of different types of photopolymers on the morphochemistry of hard tooth tissues. The purpose of this study is to confirm the efficiency of using a device that induces modulated diode light from a long wavelength corresponding to the blue region of the spectrum for a new purpose, namely, for the polymerization of photocomposite. The research results allowed to make a conclusion: while maintaining aesthetic indicators and strength of fillings, as in traditional treatment, the use of modulated diode light helps to restore the microstructure of enamel in a shorter time, increasing its mechanical resistance, which allows us to recommend this light to treat dental caries.
