Introduced in 1967 by Dr. Peter J. Jannetta, surgical microscopes have enhanced the vision of every surgeon to perform surgeries with superior precision. Today, technology is emerging very rapidly in all fields including dentistry. Clinical microscopes were introduced in the field of dentistry about 15 years ago and are serving as the best tools to visualise and analyse dental anatomy that are not visible with the naked eye otherwise.

What are Dental Microscopes?

Dental microscopes are similar to any standard microscope which zooms into tiny microscopic objects and areas. These dental microscopes have objective lenses on movable and flexible extendable arms and are used to zoom in miles ahead of the regular magnification. Dental microscopes are used in different number of dental treatments for its greater accuracy and efficiency.

Amazing Benefits of Microscopic Dentistry

Here we have listed a few benefits of microscopic dentistry.

Early Diagnosis

Remember the cliché “You can only treat what you can see”? It’s not far from the truth. Dental microscopes come with a higher resolution and provide magnified view of the teeth and the mouth at 20 times magnification. This helps you to decay or rot on teeth and pick up bacterial infections under gum tissue which often cannot be seen with a naked eye at a very early stage.

Enhanced Treatment Methods

The higher magnification feature of the dental microscope enables the dentist to use the high precision tools on the affected area for a lesser amount of time. This results in more conservative painless dentistry which the patients love and hence delivers an enhanced and better dental care.
