The introduction of the surgical microscope in dentistry has revolutionized the field of root canal therapy, endodontic microsurgery, bone & soft tissue grafting and implant therapy. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, by Carl Zeiss, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for all of our surgical and non-surgical procedures.
The operating microscope, which was first introduced to dentistry in 1981, offers significantly increased magnification and illumination of the operating field compared to the naked eye and even magnifying loupes “glasses” with attached headlamps. The improved vision allows for dramatically increased precision in the clinical practice of dentistry. Even what we consider the simplest of dental procedures involves being able to see the minutest of detail. In regards to dentistry, “if we can see it, then we have the opportunity to treat it”. Microscopic examination and microsurgical techniques have transformed the way the modern clinician practices.
This advanced technology has completely changed the scope and practice of endodontic care. The surgical microscope has expanded the field of endodontics to create micro-surgical endodontics. The magnification and illumination this technology offers, allows us to see tiny malformations in anatomy never before possible. This technology has advanced the diagnostic and treatment possibilities in all aspects of endodontic care.
The surgical microscope has also allowed us to perform endodontic and implant microsurgery utilizing tiny incisions and sutures, making it possible to achieve faster recovery than traditional methods.
