Magnification enhances the accuracy of tooth preparations and margins, preventing harm to adjacent teeth and connective tissue during dental procedures and surgery. High magnification also enables better visual acuity when looking down narrow canals or when trying to identify cracks. While magnifying an image at shallow magnifications, standard loupes are an asset. However, a dental microscope delivers 400x better visual accuracy than the naked eye and up to 300x the visual information than the typical dental loupe.
Increased magnification is increasingly becoming a more important factor as a standard of care in dentistry and is increasingly preferred by most specialists across disciplines. More than that, a greater focus is being given not just to patient health but also to dental practitioners’ health, thanks to the availability of microscopes and their inherent ability to promote greater ergonomic posture.
