How are surgical microscopes different than other microscopes?

Unlike loupes, which the dentist wears, the surgical microscope is positioned on a mounting device a few inches above the patient’s mouth where it remains during the procedure. Once the dentist has focused the optics on the site to be examined or treated he or she can dial in the desired level of magnification.

How does magnification help during your appointment?

The dentist then has the option of looking directly through the eyepieces or watching everything on a TV monitor. The area of dentistry where the value of the microscope was first proven is endodontics (root canal treatment). Finding all the canals in certain teeth is virtually impossible without magnification.

What types of procedures are surgical microscopes used for?

Seeing hairline cracks in teeth, discovering leakage around filling margins, adjusting the fit and finish of dental restorations and performing delicate gum surgery are just some of the other areas where the surgical operating microscope helps us to examine teeth and perform operations with a level of precision never before possible.
