Magnification is used by dentists to see areas of the mouth not visible with the naked eye.
What types of magnification do we use?
Dentistry requires clear visuals and magnifying loupes provide support for visual acuity over the naked eye. Our dentists also use telescopic lenses during appointments to see your mouth in great detail.
What are magnification loupes?
Magnification loupes are small magnification devices that are placed on a dentists face, similar to glasses, and are used to see small details very closely. These magnfications allow dentists to see small cavities, slight fractures and anything else that might be missed without magnification.
What are the benefits of using oupes?
Using magnification loupes are important patient care. They allow dentists to see into the oral cavity to make a diagnosis, or to perform on precise levels. They are able to see and inspect tooth decay at a level that would not be available without magnification.
