The latest developments in dental technology have resulted in the increased ease of performing the various procedures in dentistry. One such development is the endo microscope, also referred to as a surgical microscope that significantly enhances the treatment area and enables the dentists to perform the procedures with great accuracy and precision. At All Smile Dental in California, we make use of an endo microscope to detect the minute details of your teeth and mouth that might otherwise be overlooked, ultimately helping us to provide suitable treatment.
What Is an Endo Microscope?
Endo microscopes are binocular-like instruments and are worn like glasses. They allow our dentists to maintain a comfortable position during your treatment and focus more on your oral health needs. The microscopes enlarge and brighten your mouth so that the finer details of your smile can be seen clearly and highlights the precise location of any oral concerns. Many endo microscopes offer various levels of the enlargement so that your smile can be viewed as closely as needed.
What Are the Uses of Endo Microscope?
The use of an endo microscope can help in the following ways, including:
- Locate hidden canals that have been blocked by calcification and reduced in size
- Remove old solid filling material
- Get rid of canal obstructions
- Prepare for precise access to avoid unnecessary destruction of tissue
- Repair perforations
- Identify cracks and fractures that are invisible to the naked eye
- Facilitate all aspects of endodontic surgery
- Photographic documentation
What Are the Benefits of Using an Endo Microscope?
Endo microscopes provide enhanced magnification and allow the user to change views with a simple turn. They enable us to see details that we would not be able to detect with the naked eye. In addition, endo microscopes increase our accuracy and optimize performances.
Precision and Accuracy
The increased magnification allows us to access small, slender canal openings without removing much of the tooth structure. A fragment that must be removed from the root canal before filling the root canal space is also more easily spotted.
With an endo microscope, it’s no longer necessary to bend our body to obtain the correct view. These microscopes are designed in such a way that they can be fixed on ceilings, walls, or tables, and have angled optical systems that allow a wider range of focus.
Lighting is the crucial thing to look for while choosing dental equipment. Endo microscopes are equipped with advanced lightings that cast a shadowless illumination and come with a cooler temperature.
