Why is Magnification so important in Dentistry?

When it comes to treating your teeth, your dentist and hygienist can only treat what they can see. With teeth being small, there are limits to what the naked eye can see. This is why at Burneston Dental we strongly believe that magnification is a crucial part of being able to deliver quality modern dental treatments. By wearing magnification loupes, like the ones shown in the picture, your dentist and hygienist are able to see the minute details of your teeth and gums. The higher the magnification, the greater the level of visible detail.


What are the benefits of your dentist and hygienist using magnification loupes?:

  • The enhanced level of visible detail enables your dentist/hygienist to be much more accurate when diagnosing and performing your treatment
  • It can reduce treatment times i.e. you spend less time in the dental chair.
  • It gives you confidence that you are putting the care of your teeth in the hands of someone who aims to perform your care to a higher standard.
  • It improves your dentist’s/hygienist’s posture, thereby reducing their chance of suffering from neck, shoulder or back pain.
