Abstract

The use of magnification by dental clinicians when carrying out examinations and treatments is becoming more commonplace. The best instrument for this purpose is the operating microscope which has been shown to enhance quality, longevity and outcome of clinical work as well as facilitating better ergonomics for both the dentist and dental nurse. This paper, the second of two, explores the potential uses for the operating microscope in general dental as well as specialist practice (such as endodontics) and discusses how the interested clinician can use such equipment in a practical manner.

Clinical Relevance: The operating microscope enhances the dental surgeon's vision so improving treatment outcomes not only in specialist fields, such as endodontics, but also in many of the disciplines which general dental practice encompasses.
