Microscopically Enhanced Dentistry
Our practice uses high power microscopes to enhance the precision of patient care. We perform examinations and procedures using surgical operating microscopes (SOM). Each operatory is equipped with a Zeiss SOM and a flat panel display that allows our patients to see what we see. SOM’s enable us to visualize details that are simply impossible to observe any other way. Dentistry is form of micro-surgery. Microscopes allow us to perform necessary procedures with minimal biological impact.
The microscopes we use are similar to the one an ophthalmologist uses for eye surgery. Our SOM’s enables us to create dental restorations with an incredibly precise fit and finish. There is no other way to achieve such a level of care. As an added benefit, a microscope’s light source minimizes glare for the patient as it focuses the beam of light directly on the patient’s teeth and away from the patient’s eyes.
