If you need a root canal, you may be wondering how exactly it is going to be done and what tools the dentists will need to be using. Dental microscopes, also known as an endodontic microscope is a very powerful device that is used in root canals by Precision Endodontics.
The Benefits of a Dental Microscopes
One thing you can expect to experience at our office is that every procedure, every consultation, every treatment will be done 100% with a dental microscope. Dental microscopes enable us to see more clearly and provide better, more successful treatment outcomes than would be possible if the cases were not done with a microscope.
The important thing to know about the dental microscope we use is that it enables us to obtain much higher definition and better lighting, which allows us to see significantly more detail than we’d be able to without such high magnification. We can see internal cracks in a tooth. We can also see accessory canals and other areas that someone who isn’t using a microscope is unable to see or negotiate. This enhanced visibility enables us to greatly increase the success rate of every procedure we do. Our microscopes also have cameras and video cameras so anything interesting or questionable can be photographed or video-recorded and shown to you on the TV right next to your chair. We can also email the images right over to your dentist and discuss your case while you’re still here. That way, we can agree on your best options.
