Many patients don’t know just how successful microscope technology can be when it comes to discovering dental problems!
Dr. Gupta is one of the select few dentists in Rochester, NY offering microscopic dentistry in conjunction with services such as general, cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.
Microscope enhanced dentistry improves the ability of dentists to identify dental damage, decay and other problems at the earliest possible opportunity, facilitating prompt diagnosis and treatment that improves patient care and outcomes. As its name suggests, microscope enhanced dentistry refers to the use of a microscope in order to see your teeth and gums at various levels of magnification – usually from 3 to 20 times the normal size. This superior level of viewing ensure that patients can be offered superior care from diagnosis/consultation to treatment. Microscope enhanced dentistry can be used in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures.
What Are the Benefits of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry?
There are a variety of benefits associated with microscope enhanced dentistry. Most of these benefits relate to the use of the microscope, enabling our dentist to be able to see things that are not visible to the naked eye, which in turn makes it possible them to provide more superior dental treatment.
Using a dental microscope gives the dentist more precise magnified vision. With a microscope, dental procedures can be performed more accurately and more dependable using variable and adjustable magnifications and shadow- free light due to a coaxial radiating light source
The most obvious benefit of using a microscope is enhanced visibility of the area being assessed or worked on. Even dentists who have exemplary vision and/or are using magnification glasses (known as dental loupes) do not have the same degree of visibility as that which can be obtained using microscope enhanced dentistry.
The Earliest Possible Diagnosis of Dental Problems
As with all things related to health, the sooner a problem can be identified, the better it is. If it can be spotted in the developmental stage, even better. This is because issues that have been found early on are normally able to be treated much more easily and quickly than those that have been allowed to develop. For example, microscope enhanced dentistry may spot an area of decay before it has the opportunity to turn into a fully-fledged cavity. This quicker detection of problems can prevent the need for the extensive and potentially expensive treatment.
Greater Precision of Treatment
Since microscope enhanced dentistry means that your dentist has ability to see on such a small level, and often diagnose developing problems, much earlier, so oral health issues can be addressed before they’re even visible with a regular exam. This includes everything from standard fillings and crowns to more invasive treatments such as root canal. This ensures that every aspect of your dental care is carried out to the very highest standards.
The Improved Cosmetic Appearance of Your Teeth
How your teeth look is especially important to you. Using microscope enhanced dentistry, we can be used that any restorations or cosmetic treatments are smoother, more polished and as attractive as possible, ensuring that you leave our offices happy and confident in your smile.
