The use of operatory magnification via dental loupes, surgical loupes, and/or dental microscopes is considered the standard of care in dentistry, especially for endodontic procedures.

Most dental practitioners use 2.5x magnification for day-to-day use, reserving levels of 4x to 8x for selected procedures. Flip-up loupes are still commonly used, but their popularity has been surpassed by that of through-the-lens magnification.

When selecting dental loupes, clinicians should keep in mind that:

-Depth and width of field decrease as magnification increases;

-Taller clinicians typically require higher power than practitioners of average height (loupe visual acuity decreases as working distances increase);

-Magnification levels of loupes from different manufacturers may be rated differently (i.e, “Company A’s” 3.5x loupes may be equivalent to “Company B’s” 2.5x loupes).

Clinical microscopes provide magnification of 20x and higher. While used routinely by some dentists, others use loupes for the bulk of procedures and then switch to microscopes for completion.

A newer device intended to replace cameras, loupes, microscopes and operatory lights enables clinicians to view the operating field on a monitor directly in front of patients while working in a more ergonomic (upright, heads-up, relaxed) sitting position. Magnification ranges from 1x to 23x and the 4" depth of field enables a wide range of procedures.

    In my neck of the woods, I often see bikers (bicycle bikers and motorcycle bikers) riding with GoPro cameras attached to their helmets. And I’ve seen tons of videos taken from the point of view of skiers, surfers, snow boarders, and mountain bikers. I even saw one from the perspective of a dog because the owner had figured out a way to strap the...

    Recently, a couple of dentist friends of mine were talking about dental microscopes. I sat and listened while they discussed the reasons why they would like to have a microscope in their practices—better visualization in the oral cavity, varying levels of magnification, improved ergonomics, and on and on. But then they summed it all up by saying...

    Dentists and hygienists deserve a lot of credit for working in the small, cramped space of the oral cavity. It’s dark in there, and not all patients are cooperative when it comes to maintaining an open mouth and an immobile tongue. It has to be a constant struggle to get a good view of the specific work area, especially way back there in the...
