Microscope – You Cannot Treat What You Cannot See…
We have been using microscopes for nearly 10 years. We were one of the first practices in the country to invest in an operating microscope, and remain one of very few general practices in the country to use them. Many dentists use magnifiers on glasses (called ‘loupes’), which generally have magnifications of 2-3X. The scope can go to 25X – quite obviously, you can see a lot more.
Why? Because what you can see and do is amazing. The high magnification allows extraordinary precision in both diagnosis and treatment. For example, we can reliably spot microfractures very early, before catastrophic damage occurs to a tooth.
Specialists in root canal treatment (Endodontists) would not dream of doing their work without a scope.
We loved the scope so much I bought another – we have this in 2 treatment rooms.
The benefit to you:
Greater precision means more careful work, with greater durability, better finishes, more correct diagnosis
