The Dental Microscope:
A dental operating microscope (D.O.M.) has been a key tool for endodontic (root canal) dentistry since it became a requirement for residencies to teach specialists to use it in 1998. Over the last 20 years, it has been adopted for work in all phases of dentistry including periodontal (gum disease) treatment and restorative dentistry and surgery over the last two decades. These microscopes are practically designed for viewing during actual clinical work with patients.
Advantages of Microscope Dentistry:
The Microscope provides 400 times more visual accuracy than the naked eye and 100 times the visual information than traditional dental loupes. Magnification improves the accuracy of tooth preparations and margins preventing damage to adjacent teeth and connective tissue during all kinds of dental operations and surgery.
