Prof. Sleiman presents several clinical cases from routine to complex procedures, and describes how the Leica dental microscope supports him in his clinical practice, such as:
- Finding more canals
- Dealing with calcified canals
- Removing posts
- Removing separated instruments
- Complex Cases
This video shows how an authentic visualization with true colors helps to improve the identification of the root canal access.
See how important the depth of field is for preparing the root canals properly, especially in cases with cavities having limited access.
A calcification is always a critical challenge during the preparation of a root canal. The enhanced microscopic view enables a very precise treatment and helps to avoid the risk of damages, such as a perforation.
An accurate post removal requires a high magnification and a strong illumination to allow precise surgery in narrow cavities.
See how Prof. Sleiman performs the removal of a "butterfly" post in this video. A brightly illuminated field of view and great depth perception are key to accurately remove separated or broken posts.
See how Prof. Sleiman removes posts and infected bones, in order to perform a retrograde preparation afterwards.
In this case with infected bones, caused by a failure of the bone grafting, Prof. Sleiman removes the infected parts and performs a retrograde preparation with high accuracy, using the M320 dental microscope from Leica Microsystems.
Using a dental microscope provides numerous advantages when dealing with complex cases in endodontics, e.g. when removing separated instruments.
An accurate visualization of the operating field with true colors, good depth of field, and high magnification allow for precise and successful treatment. In this case, Prof. Sleiman removes separated instruments and performs retrograde microsurgery with an apicectomy.
