  • Good Reasons why to use a Dental Microscope – Interview with Endodontist Dr. Thorsten Wegner

    With its high magnification and coaxial illumination, a dental microscope provides enhanced visualization that supports diagnosis and treatment. Its documentation capabilities also play a major role in a modern dental practice by supporting patient consultation. We interviewed Dr. Thorsten Wegner, an endodontist based in Stadthagen, Germany, to find out why he uses the microscope in all aspects of his dental practice.

  • Successful Endodontic Treatment Supported by a Dental Microscope

    In endodontics, accurate treatment is not only dependent on the technical skills and knowledge of the dentist, but also on clear, detailed visualization of the surgical field. As the outcome of an endodontic therapy is influenced by many factors that are not visible to the naked eye – e.g. additional root canals or anatomical variations – the high magnification and illumination provided by a dental microscope has become indispensable for both diagnosis and therapy. Today, it is widely agreed that the use of dental microscopes has helped to extend endodontic treatment potential.

  • The Dental Microscope in Endodontics

    In dentistry a bright, magnified view into deep cavities supports detailed diagnosis and precise therapy, particularly in the field of endodontics. In this interview Dr. Dean Raicov explains the benefits of the dental microscope in his practice. Dr. Raicov is a dentist based in Röhrnbach, Germany and specializes in endodontics, parodontology, and prosthetics. He is a member of the European Society of Microscope Dentistry (ESMD) and the German Society of Endodontics and Paradontology.

  • Six Features to Consider when Choosing a Dental Microscope

    In dental medicine, the surgical microscope has become increasingly important for high-quality and successful surgeries, particularly in the field of endodontics. A microscope supports the dentist to conduct micro-invasive surgeries which aim to preserve the tooth substance, conserve the tissue, minimize the risks and reduce healing time. To choose the microscope that best fits the dentist’s needs, it is helpful to know some of the decisive features of a modern dental microscope.

  • Video: Traumatic Soft and Hard Tissue Wound on the Maxillary Anterior with Microscope Assisted Rehabilitation

    The concept of minimal intervention dentistry became a primary approach to treat carious lesions. These days, this concept could be adapted to manage soft tissue around the teeth and implants as a minimally invasive technique. This video, we show a case of traumatic soft and hard tissue wound on the maxillary anterior and its rehabilitation. The patient was a 22 year-old women, and her chief complaint was severe aesthetic disorder because of her trauma. She lost two incisor teeth as well as tissue and bone around the teeth.

  • Video: Implant Microsurgery – Microscope-­aided Maxillary Sinus Floor Elevation, Lateral Window Technique

    The lateral window technique is a method of maxillary sinus floor elevation which enables implant placement in the maxillary posterior region where the maxillary sinus is enlarged and/or the alveolar bone height is deficient. When creating a lateral window, great care should be taken not to perforate the maxillary sinus membrane.

  • Surface Roughness of Flowable Resin Composites eroded by Acidic and Alcoholic Drinks

    Acidic beverages, such as soft drinks (orange juice, and cola), or ethanol (whisky), can produce erosion of resin composites. The surface degradation of resin materials is related to the content and distribution of the fillers, the composition of the matrix resin, and the effect of silane surface treatment on the fillers.
