What will the doctor see?
- potential danger: subgingival deposits, splits, cracks, caries at the initial stage, when it looks like a stain and is not visible to us even in very good light. The powerful light source of the microscope, multiple magnification and the trained eye of the endodontist will help isolate or eliminate the place of bacteria formation and save teeth with the listed defects from destruction;
- the place where the fillings fit to the tooth: when filling a tooth under a microscope, the doctor can ensure a more accurate fit of the fillings to the edges of the tooth, the tissue structure will be restored finely and accurately, repeating the anatomical structure of the tooth, as a result, the fillings will stand several times longer;
- the accuracy of the fit of the crown to the tooth: in order for the tooth prosthesis to serve for a long time, it is very important to ensure perfect grinding. If this procedure is performed under a microscope, the life of the prosthetic tooth increases and the tooth under the crown will not deteriorate, since the possibility of getting food or drinks under the crown is reduced to a minimum;
- the number, direction, course of the canals, as well as foreign objects in previously treated canals.
So, CANALS. You need to stop here. Since a microscope is vital to treat tooth canals!
Remember that caring for the health of your teeth is primarily your task. Do not miss regular examinations at your dentist, and if you feel discomfort or pain, immediately seek professional help.
