Microscopes are particularly useful in dentistry for various purposes such as diagnosis of subgingival deposits, microfractures, longitudinal fractures, defective marginal fit of restorations and other things that can be overlooked clinically. In addition, magnification is often necessary to study root canal anatomy and the root surface in endodontics.
In general magnification can be set to between 4x and 24x, thereby expanding the diagnostic options due to better lighting and sight.
When coupled with the appropriate capture devices, microscopes can become instruments capable of projecting and recording clinical procedure in a more streamlined and efficient manner.
There are five key areas in which microscopes offer distinct advantages and benefits to the clinician:
Illumination: When magnification is used, the available light is spread out and the image appears darker. To compensate for this, an LED light, mounted directly on the microscope head provides a bright, white light.
Precision: Increased targeted magnification using a microscope enables dentists to see the treatment area in great clarity and therefore aids the completion of detailed work.
Visualisation: Dentists can only treat what they see. When using a microscope, the lens can be positioned directly over the patient’s mouth without any additional discomfort either for patient or clinician.
Ergonomics: When using a microscope dentists can be seated, which means a more comfortable working environment, particularly for longer procedures.
The benefits of microscopes are many and varied and have applications across a range of dental disciplines.
The Kaps 900 is a high performance and user-friendly dental microscope. It supports the dentist’s routine work and is a perfect entry level model with an attractive price-performance ratio.
Kaps optics deliver crystal-clear images and high resolution details in natural colours (apochromatic optics).
The high-contrast colour temperature of the LED lighting strongly resembles daylight. In addition, the even lighting of the field of vision makes work less tiring. Further advantages include the long durability (50,000 hours) and low electricity consumption. The LED lighting is noiseless and generates minimum heat.
With the Kaps 900, clinicians are always seated comfortably in an ergonomic upright position, resulting in a much more relaxed approach to clinical work.
The EXTARO 300 from ZEISS provides breakthrough visualisation modes that brings new applications to micro dentistry. From more efficient caries detection to a simpler tooth restoration workflow, the ZEISS EXTARO 300 is poised to revolutionise and differentiate your practice.
The ZEISS EXTARO 300 enables more accurate assessment of the surgical situation enabling better decision-making. Enhancing your surgical visualisation, the MultiSpectral Mode and the NoGlare Mode assist you in making right surgical decisions.
Any adjustment or re-positioning of an ENT microscope can disturb focus and cost valuable time. With the ZEISS EXTARO 300, these procedures can be performed with maximum focus and efficiency.
The ZEISS EXTARO 300 allows you to activate all visualisation modes and camera functionalities without taking your eyes off the surgical field. With only one finger, clinicians can reach the multifunctional Mode Control to activate all visualisation and capture modes, as well as light settings. From the same hand position, you can adjust the focus without leaving your preferred working position.
This helps you to preserve as much of the healthy tooth substance as possible. It also supports you in distinguishing natural hard tooth tissue from the most widely used dental composite resin. Using this clear visual differentiation will help you to target the affected area quickly, saving you valuable chair time during excavation.
This allows for precise analysis a tooth shade. It effectively suppresses obtrusive light reflections from the tooth surface and prevents premature composite curing while working in a natural light environment.
Allows the identification of relevant dental tissues in a natural, white-light setting
The integrated HD camera records wirelessly to the ZEISS Connect App, from where images and videos can be directly transferred to your local network.
With the Zeiss Connect App, you can show images of past and current patient conditions and highlight areas requiring treatment, enabling your patients to make informed decisions.

Clarity of vision is vital to meet the demands of today’s patients. Loupes, lights and microscopes are an important part of a clinician’s equipment and create the right environment to deliver outstanding treatment. There has never been a better time to invest in magnification and Henry Schein Dental has picked the best equipment to help clinicians make the most appropriate choice.
