Microscope Enhanced Dentistry | Pinecrest Dental in Miami
Dr. Ozzie Mayoral and Sandra, his assistant, enhance the precision of the dental care they provide with their microscopes. Here they are seen performing conservative “invisible” cosmetic dentistry on their patient, Adam. Seeing is believing, and they are happy to offer their patients the very best care that modern technology allows.
Surgical microscopes have been used in operating rooms since 1953, giving surgeons the extra vision they need to perform superior precision, leaving nothing to chance. Technology is emerging very rapidly in all fields and dentistry is no exception. Approximately 15 years ago, clinical microscopes were introduced into dentistry as an aid in the field of endodontics. Today, 100% of all US-accredited Endodontic Specialty programs (in which dentists specialize in root canals) train their residents using microscopes exclusively.
Dr. Mayoral has been using the microscope successfully for restorative and cosmetic dentistry since 2006 and foresees that many other restorative dentists will eventually adopt this technology. Microscope Enhanced Dentistry allows Dr. Mayoral to conserve healthy tooth structure and repair only what is necessary, while making it invisible to the naked eye. This kind of precision is only possible when teeth are magnified 16+ times in 3D.
