What is Microscopic Dentistry?
The use of microscope is widely accepted in dentistry, after neurosurgery and ophthalmic surgery. This assistance is beneficial to every aspect of dentistry. During treatment the microscope helps the dentist to see the teeth to be treated, down to every single detail, hence providing a more successful treatment. Microscopic dentistry is a new and alternative method. With higher success rate, number of satisfied patients is increased.
How is It Applied?
Microscopic dentistry consists of evaluating the tooth to be treated in detail with a microscope. The most important thing that distinguishes this method from standard dentistry is the ability to reach every little detail which can be overlooked with standard methods. After examination, a diagnosis is reached and microscopic evaluation begins. The microscope is prepared for the patient and throughout the entire treatment, it is actively used.
During the appointments when the microscope Is used, patients are advised to keep a comfortable position with minimal movement. The first principle of medicine is not to harm surrounding tissues during the treatment. With the help of the microscope, the effect on surrounding structures is minimal. The microscope provides a precise and safe treatment in small places which otherwise could have been neglected. It is possible to get images with very sharp lines, without shadow (with halogen technology), in sizes that vary from x4 to x24. The microfractures, caries, abrasions, infected and pathological tissues which are so small that they are not visible to the naked eye, can easily be determined and treated.
