If You Can`t See It, You Can`t Treat It: Vision In Dentistry

June 17, 2019 | Author: | Posted in INTERNET

Dentistry, like medicine and technology, is constantly evolving in the materials, equipment, and manner in which treatment is provided. Dentistry has evolved in every way from patient care and communication to methods and materials in treatment, sterilization and infection control standards, imaging, and VISION.

To effectively treat any problem, your dentist must first SEE the problem, then understand and DIAGNOSE the problem accurately. Subsequently, he or she can then provide the appropriate treatment.

Beyond the benefits of reduced radiation, the advent of digital radiography has had a profound impact on the ability to see, in greater detail, the hard tissues of the mouth compared with the older style analogue radiography. As a result, clinicians who offer you this service are able to see more, diagnose better, and even plan treatment approaches with improved accuracy at no additional cost to you.

Magnification in dentistry has also evolved and become increasingly important to the provision of quality dentistry. The ability to examine, evaluate, and treat using magnification is an absolute necessity in the fields of neurology, ophthalmology, spinal surgery, oncology, and ear, nose, and throat surgery among others. Surgical microscopes have found their place in the operating rooms of hospitals where any degree of microsurgery is performed. Yet they have not found their way into every dental operatory. Why not? The answer is the cost to the dentist and the learning curve required for the clinician.

It is indisputable that better vision contributes to enhancing the quality of an examination and treatment. A better examination permits a more accurate diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis permits the appropriate treatment.

There is no better way for your dentist to see your teeth and mouth than with a surgical microscope. Using a microscope during treatment helps minimize guesswork and allows your dentist to see areas that would otherwise remain hidden. All of this can lead to a more through treatment without affecting the cost of treatment.
