Microscopes

Advances in endodontics in the past two decades have given endodontists important new tools to save natural dentition.  In the early 1990's, operating microscopes were introduced into endodontic practice.  By providing both intense focused light as well as a high degree of magnification improves visualization of all aspects of the operative field.

The microscope has become an important part of the armamentarium for many endodontists, for the microscope enables endodontists to resolve treatment challenges previously unrecognized or untreatable.

Benefits from the use of a microscope

• Locating hidden canals that have been obstructed by calcifications and reduced in size

• Removing materials such as solid obstruction materials (silver points and carrier-based materials), posts or separated instruments

• Removing canal obstructions

• Assisting in access preparation to avoid unnecessary destruction of mineralized tissue

• Repairing biological and iatrogenic perforations

• Locating cracks and fractures that are neither visible to the naked eye nor palpable with an endodontic explorer

• Facilitating all aspects of endodontic surgery, particularly in root-end resection and placement of retro-filling material
