How Does It Work?
Microscopic dentistry utilizes special microscopes to provide detailed, close-up images of a patient’s mouth for use in general, cosmetic and restorative dental care. When implemented into a dental exam or treatment, these microscopes can examine the mouth, gums and teeth with magnification of up to 20 times that of the naked eye. This form of dentistry is exceptionally useful in detecting hairline fractures and other small dental imperfections that can grow over time if left untreated.
Microscopic Dentistry in Preventive Care
The value of high magnification in dentistry (such as in dental surgery, endodontic dentistry or in treating periodontal disease) has been well established for many years. By locating and treating even the smallest signs of tooth decay or dental injury, patient treatments become more efficient and patients experience reduced risks of developing larger or more expensive dental problems down the line. Even in general dental treatments the use of a surgical dental microscope can reveal valuable information used to improve preventive and conservative dental care methods.
Gentle Root Canals in Modern Dentistry
One of the most important aspects in treating an infected root canal is to eliminate any signs of remaining infection, bacteria or debri before filling the empty root canal with a strong and flexible material. Because of its heightened abilities in magnification, microscopic dentistry enhances a dentist’s ability to effectively clean the root canal and protect it from future decay or infection. As with any treatment, however, maintaining a good dental hygiene routine by brushing and flossing twice daily is still advised.
