There are certain dental procedures during which the dentist may need better visualization than is permitted by magnifying loupes (Glasses). Dental microscopes can be such a tool, which allows greater precision in certain patient care situations. Some microscopes magnify up to twenty-four times! These microscopes are usually equipped with special lights, designed to illuminate the areas that are most difficult to see in the mouth.
Improved comfort is an additional benefit of the dental microscope. When the dentist can see, at significant magnification and illumination, the precise area on which he or she is working, the clinician’s level of precision increases and patients, in turn, are more comfortable as the treatment is more focused.
With root canals, the dental microscope is helpful for diagnosing irregular root shapes, visualization of calcifications and root or canal changes, viewing of denticles and other calcifications, thorough visualization of open apex (root end), repair of root perforations, or any microsurgical indications.
In certain instances, the dental microscope allows dental professionals to thoroughly visualize, diagnose, and treat patients which results in a higher standard of care, increased comfort, and improved quality of treatment.
