Uses of dental medical microscopes
Dental medical microscopes are invaluable tools for inspecting and diagnosing tissues in the gums, palate and other areas of the mouth. Their magnification and zoom focus controls allow dentists to perform precise microsurgical incisions and sutures on gum tissue. These instruments are also used in the evaluation and close inspection of the gums and teeth and on the quality of dental restoration work. They are excellent tools for the removal of dirt and caries and for laser surgery.
Dental medical microscopes are effective tools for the magnification and lighting of the mouth cavity during surgery. Magnification allows dental surgeons to perform accurate incisions on the gums, minimizing the size of the wound. This allows more comfort and faster healing time for the patient. Dental medical microscopes are also used during root canal operations.
The dental medical microscope may also be equipped with a digital camera or video camera for the documentation of dental work. This is often used for insurance purposes. Documenting dental work is also an excellent tool for training dentistry students and for educating patients.
In restorative dentistry, dental medical microscopes are used to view tooth preparation and refinement. Because of its focusing and magnification features, it allows close inspection of any restorations performed in teeth or gum tissues. During inspection of restored teeth and roots, any abnormalities may be viewed and corrected immediately. Dental medical microscopes are also used for polishing and finishing teeth margins and for contouring teeth and teeth implants.
