Microscope-assisted procedures are slowly but surely becoming more common in dental clinics around the world.

Now, patients from Ploiesti can benefit from the advantages of procedures performed under microscopic control at Office Dent dental clinic.

Teeth are very small and fine structures similar to eyes, ears or noses. ENT surgeons, ophthalmic surgeons or neurosurgeons routinely operate under a microscope to give operations greater precision and accuracy. The advent of the microscope in dental practice has led to greater accuracy in the predictability of treatments and in obtaining results of superior functionality and aesthetics because it has two major benefits: excellent illumination without shadows and enlargements of more than 25 times because you cannot treat what you cannot see!

For the dentist, the detailed view of a tooth or root canal improves the quality of the medical procedure and during treatment, the patient can follow the procedure in real time on the office monitor and have the same clear image as the doctor.

Treatments under the microscope are recommended in certain situations:
  • Endodontics (branch of dentistry dealing with root canal treatment of teeth). Because of the much better visualization, root canal treatments are much more effective and more complicated procedures such as the removal of broken needles from the canal or teeth with calcified canals or accessory canals can be treated because the microscope provides a high magnification that helps visualize details that would otherwise be impossible to see with the naked eye.
  • Possible avoidance of an extraction - retreatment of teeth that have developed a granuloma at the root level is done much more accurately and in some cases teeth can be saved from extraction.
  • The treatment of dental caries is much more effective because the microscope, through the enlargements it offers, ensures the elimination of caries in its entirety and not more than necessary and the fillings (fillings) are much better adapted not allowing further infiltrations.
  • Microscopically controlled tooth extraction ensures a better cleaning of the teeth and periodontal flap operations (cleaning of the tooth root with special instruments) have a better result because all affected tissue is removed and healthy tissue is preserved intact to a greater extent.
  • Grinding teeth to be covered with a metal or ceramic crown is a common procedure in dental practice. If the microscope is used then the edges that are ground are much smoother and more precise allowing the artificial crown to fit better and thus achieving a superior fit and aesthetics.

For doctors, the use of the microscope is a benefit because it improves their position during work, it makes them constantly improve their skills because many hours of training are needed to really benefit from working with the optical microscope.
