With a microscope, dental procedures can be performed more accurately and reliably using variable and adjustable magnification. This will increase the following:
Magnified Image – Microscopes provide 3 x to 30 x magnification with the ability to change views with a simple turn of a dial. Microscopes offer a deeper depth of field view and a wider field of view than traditional dental loupes.
Increased Precision – The increased magnification allows the endodontist to access small, narrow canal opening without unnecessarily removing tooth structure. Debris that must be removed from the root canal before filling the root canal space is also more easily identified.
Improved Illumination – When magnification is used, the available light is spread out and the image appears darker. To compensate for this, an LED light is mounted directly on the microscope head and provides a bright, white light.
Improved Visualisation – Endodontists can only treat what they can see. The microscope lens can be placed directly over the patient’s mouth without any additional discomfort.
