Dental Loupes

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×.

The dental industry has performed research regarding magnification. Because the identification of accessory canals in addition to the primary pulp canals is essential to complete nonsurgical root canal therapy, magnification provides dentists enhanced visualization to locate and treat more obscured canals.

Why Are Dental Loupes So Important?

Dental loupes are the magnifying glasses that dentists wear to enlarge what that they are looking at inside the mouth. There are two main reasons why these loupes are worn by dentists. First and most importantly, vision is improved simply because everything in the field of view is so much larger. Secondly, loupes are worn to allow dentists to have a improved posture while working, and thereby minimize the strain on the neck and back.

Why is it important to have an enlarged filed-of-view of the working area?

A better and enlarged filed-of-view will results in more precise dental work. Dentists are better able to see the teeth that they are shaping or preparing for their patients. Most importantly with quality dental loupes, dentists are more capable to make accurate and complete diagnoses of what is occurring in their patient’s mouth.
