Microscopes in Endodontics
The operating microscope greatly enhances a clinician’s ability to view the tiniest details inside a patient’s tooth. By magnifying vision up to 25 times that of the naked eye, the dental microscope is useful in both diagnosis and treatment. Research demonstrates better outcomes compared to treatment without vision enhancement or magnification. Microscopes aid in:
- Finding hidden and accessory canals
- Locating and removing separated instruments
- Preserving more tooth structure
- Improving ergonomics for the clinician.
