The dental microscope has ample benefits such as improved efficiency, quality of treatment, ergonomics, productivity, documentation, education and patient/doctor communication. The bright and magnified view into deep cavities helps with detailed diagnosis and treatment, especially for restorative and endodontic procedures. Our endodontist, Dr. Seto, uses the dental microscope to assist during endodontic therapy.
Endodontic therapy relies on many factors that are not visible to the naked eye such as additional root canals and anatomical variations from patient to patient. The illumination, magnification and definition offered by the dental microscope can help the endodontist better access the small, narrow canal openings during root canal treatment and re-treatment. The dental microscope improves endodontic therapy precision from diagnosis to treatment to post-endodontic management.
