The microscope has redefined the concept of visualisation as we’ll only be able to treat what we can see!
The magnification of up to 32 times and the size of the target offered by our microscope, provides a totally different quality of work, enabling the doctor to be as conservative as possible, preserving all tissues of the oral cavity including teeth and their supporting tissues. Shadow free lightning translates into the quality of the treatments we perform.
Magnification in Endodontics:
Before the introduction of the optical microscope, magnifying glasses were the only available type of magnification. Although they improve visual acuity, they have numerous limitations.
Without a microscope, endodontic treatments are performed in the dark. X-ray based diagnosis and treatment using radiography are not so accurate because it only shows two dimensions of a three-dimensional object. At The Oral Lab the CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) is at our disposal as well. This three dimensional diagnostic tool allows safer treatments with a substantial increase in success rates.
Better visualisation: the microscope increases the field of view and allows the endodontist to see very detailed images, improving the quality of the treatment. Unique and specialised treatment situations can be addressed with greater precision.
Optimized lighting: the microscope has its own light that improves the definition of the image allowing an excellent visualisation of the working field.
Documentation through images of the working field that allows the doctor to communicate the treatment’s details.
High magnification is required to assist in the total removal of caries, identification of calcified channels, detection of microfractures and assistance on fractured instruments from inside the root system.
The microscope allows an increase in the visualisation of root canals and its anomalies, thus allowing the disinfection of the entire canalicular system. As a result, it improves the long-term prognosis of the endodontic treatment.
The Microscope is an indispensable equipment for more differentiated treatments such as:
Non-Surgical Endodontic Retreatment: teeth that have already devitalized and need to be retracted.
Removing Fractured Instruments and posts
Root Treatment with Immature Apex (Teeth not fully formed yet)
Magnification in Oral Rehabilitation
From diagnosis to treatment, the precision of technical gestures determines a superior quality of work, resulting in the excellence of our results. The rigour with which we prepare a tooth throug mechanical means, the evaluation of its impression and the subsequent fitting tests are just some examples of how the magnification affects the final result of the treatment. The details are absolutely determinant to provide you with the most conservative and long-lasting treatment technically possible.

Magnification in Surgery
Allows microsurgery principles to be applied on surgical procedures, these include
-The use of specific micro-instruments
-The use of micro-suture that can hardly be seen without magnification
The excellent adaptation of surgical wounds with micro sutures prevents the appearance of scars, substantially improves the postoperative period and accelerates the entire healing process.
The magnification also allows for the execution of very delicate techniques that manipulate soft and hard tissues (gingivae and bone) with all the required precision.
The high standards of our clinical work, demand up to date scientific evidenced knowledge, sound techniques and experienced professionals.
