Dental practitioners have the privilege of using Microscope Technology to assess oral health problems in patients. A relatively new technology, one might say that the dental operating microscope is the most important technological tool in the dental office! This precise instrument helps Dr. Shervin of South Muskoka Dental to clearly visualize the finest details with its magnification and precision, allowing for a very accu-rate diagnosis that can be life-saving. The microscope can assist in such things as the early detection of tooth fractures or decay that begin at a microscopic level, which would otherwise not be visible to the naked eye alone.
Without the help of Microscope Technology, there is a higher risk of a patient receiving a misdiagnosis. An improperly diagnosed condition could eventually lead to other serious health issues that could send a patient into the doctor’s office, never mind the dentist’s chair. Dr. Shervin can accurately assign the ap-propriate treatment option to a patient, risk-free.
Microscope Technology truly influences the way professionals practice dentistry every day. When using this instrument, the patient’s teeth are magnified and projected onto a large screen. The amount of magnification can range from 3x to 20x for a clear and detailed visual of the patient’s mouth. A large spectrum of treatments can be accurately assigned to patients, using this high-performance technology – and due to its precision, smaller incisions can be made – resulting in reduced pain and scarring.
Dr. Shervin continues to stress the importance of incorporating a dental operating microscope into one’s practice or dental visit. This technology profoundly allows us to see every small crack and fracture in the tooth, which is necessary for a correct diagnosis and treatment.
