Dental microscope applications

Operating microscopes have been used in various medical surgical procedures for many decades, but in dentistry they have played significant role only during past 10 years.

When microscopes use in dentistry mainly started in endodontics and spread rapidly to periodontics and oral surgery, restorative dentists began to discover the advantages of microscope. These advantages include tremendously increased visibility and lighting, much improved ergonomics and posture, enhanced ability to utilize assistants, and  because of these factors, a significant improvement in diagnosis and treatment results. The increased visibility has also prompted the adoption of various imaging devices to the operating microscope, from SLRs to dedicated video and digital media, both still and motion.

As we are talking about dentistry the operating microscope is named dental microscpe or endodontic microscope (hovever the application covers many other branches of dentistry besides endo).

Endodontics

1. Allows surgeon to minimize the size of the surgical site, reducing patient discomfort and healing time.
2. Improves accuracy of microsurgical incisions and suturing with 6-0 through 8-0 sutures, permitting precise tissue/tissue and tissue/tooth approximation for primary would healing.
3. Improves lighting and magnification aid in locating additional canals.
4. Aids in retreatment of broken instruments.
5. Improved ability to thoroughly clean prepared canals. 007

6. Accurate depth of retro-prep extension can be more easily assessed.
7. Permits micro-level osseous surgery facilitating bone removal without nicking the root surface and allows for better periodontal ligament preservation during ostectomy.
8. Permits accurate and easier root amputations and hemisection.
9. Improves detection and evaluation of root fractures and abnormalities.
10. Provides upright working conditions, alleviating occupational neck, back and shoulder problems.
11. Provides high-resolution video and 35mm photography for patient education, enhanced training, and insurance/legal documentation.

Applications of the SmartOPTIC Microscope in Restorative Dentistry

1. Provides refinement in tooth and margin preparation.
2. Allows for closer inspection of restorations and marginal tissues.
3. Improved lighting and magnification aid in caries detection and removal.
4. Improves detection and evaluation of coronal and root fractures and abnormalities.
5. Facilitates cord placement for gingival retraction.
6. Provides for better inspection of impressions. 012 7. Helps with inspection of marginal fit of restoration (crowns, veneers, inlay/onlay, amalgam, composite).
8. Facilitates in finishing and polishing of margins.
9. Assists in gingival contouring or reshaping around teeth and implants.
10. Assists in evaluation after cementation.
