Dental loupes aid dentists to devise accurate diagnosis of oral conditions and enhance surgical precision when completing treatment. Additionally, loupes can improve dentists’ posture which can decrease occupational strain.
Magnification enables dentists to improve their ability to differentiate between a stain and a cavity. Cavities are rated and scored based on their visual presentation. If magnification is too high diagnosis becomes difficult due to the small field of view. Ideal magnification for diagnostic purposes is up to 2×.
