Microscopic Dentistry

What are the advantages of Microscopic Dentistry?

From a patient's perspective, when a dentist has invested in technology that helps provide superior services, patients benefit exponentially in the long run.  Problems can be seen and eliminated at the preparation and impression stages of treatment which will minimize both treatment time in the chair and additional visits.  

Advantages of utilizing microscopes in dentistry include but are not limited to the following:

  • Multiple choices of magnification easily accessible with just a touch, from 2x to over 30x.
  • Fantastic positioning for the dentist, solving many traditional ergonomic problems.
  • Optical properties of viewing through surgical microscopes eliminate many strains on the eyes, allowing the dentist to have greater and longer focus during their operating procedure
  • Vision and clarity is heightened and maximized with the illumination of shadows provided by the coaxial lighting from the microscope
  • Apparent increases in fine motor skills due to increased visual acuity and visibility

Patient Education

The World Health Organization expanded the definition of health to mean 'a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being, and not just the absence of infirmity.'

It follows that oral health is essential to that wellbeing. Craniofacial tissues, whose function we often take for granted represent the very essence of our humanity.

"They allow us to speak and smile; sigh and kiss; smell, taste, touch, chew and swallow; and convey a world of feelings and emotions through facial expressions."

- California Dental Association

Health is the most important component in your smile, as gum disease and other oral health complications can lead to tooth loss, systemic diseases, and other consequences. At Santa Monica Esthetic Dentistry, we believe an informed patient is a happy patient. Regular dental care, good oral hygiene practices, and a healthy diet are all essential to preventing a variety of health problems from forming and to maintaining a beautiful and healthy smile.

If you have any questions or concerns about how you can improve your oral health, we encourage you to set up a consultation with us by booking online or calling our office.
