Dental Operating Microscope

Preservation dentistry has reached a new level of excellence at the turn of the century with the widespread use of the dental operating microscope. The device was introduced to the market in 1982 but it wasn’t until 1997 that it spread across the dentistry clinics across the world. And it made a great difference. With the possibilities it presented the dentists with, it really brought the whole field into the new millennia. 

What is dental operating microscope?

Formerly, the dentist had to only rely on his eyes and his touch in order to examine even complicated problems of teeth and the gums. With the introduction of operational microscope an additional insight was provided for them and for example, the success rate of endodontic treatments – for which the microscope is primarily used – has increased up to 97 %.

The Mediestetik clinic uses top-class dental operating microscope of a prestigious Carl Zeiss brand, which enables to magnify up to 30 times.

What are the advantages of treatments performed with dental operating microscope?

  • The microscope enables to ascertain the exact location of root canals, their throughput, flections and any other possible anatomic specifications of the patient’s teeth, which are usually not detectable by naked eye
  • Full visual control during such treatment enables to truly remove only the infected parts of the tooth and to safely preserve all healthy tissues
  • Treatment performed with the use of dental operating microscope decreases the risk of breaking the file inside the root, as well as the risk of perforation (creating a false root canal in the tooth) or of overlooking other infected root canals
  • Even quite complicated treatments can be performed with the use of dental operating microscope, as well as repeated treatment (when the root canal had already been treated once before), removal of the fragments of broken files which could have stayed in the root canal after previous unsuccessful treatments etc.
