In examination and treatment, the finest details matter. During a root canal treatment, for example, the use of dental microscopes has become indispensable. Prior to the introduction of optical magnification, results were not as successful – today, dental microscopes can provide up to 30 times magnification, alongside coaxial lighting, to provide great results. In many cases, a dental microscope results in a higher level of tooth preservation. Root posts can be removed gently, and root perforations can be seen and treated more accurately. As well, tooth fracture lines can be more accurately spotted and identified. Overall, it can be said that dental microscopes give an entirely new and more precise view in dentistry.
