Dental loupes uses are to clean even the tiniest parts inside the mouth. Without them, teeth may look clean, but with the magnifying glasses, any attachments can be seen. The glasses can easily remove tartar inside the gums (periodontal pockets), resulting in less residual tartar and plaque compared to naked eyes. Mouth cleaning becomes simpler and more precise, and patient discomfort during treatment reduces. dental eye loupes do not damage fillings or have easily missed spots, unlike naked eyes, which increases treatment accuracy. The items left after the filling is noticed quickly, which enhances the level of expertise in dental treatment.
The long axes of the two tubes converge at the corresponding focal point, and the eyes must follow the same path to see the surgical area, leading to eye fatigue. Particularly after long-time operations, it may cause pathological changes in vision. Usually, the magnification multiples of dentist magnifying glasses are fixed between 2 and 5. If different magnifications are necessary, the magnifying glasses need to be replaced. The magnification multiples of dental magnifier are typically within 2 to 8. Beginners should choose 2 to 3 multiples as they adapt easily. General practitioners of dentistry can use 3 to 5 magnifications, while root canal or crown teeth with pre-embedded posts can use 4 times or more. Pupil distance, downward-tilt angle, and existing myopia and presbyopia must be calculated, so if conditions are suitable, it is best to have an optometrist to conduct a face-to-face test and wear them.
(1) Gradual training from low magnification to high magnification
As a dental instrument manufacturer, we understand the challenges of transitioning from macroscopic to microscopic dental procedures during operations. The adaptation process often requires an adjustment in approach. Our dental magnifying glasses have quite exact horizons of operation, ranging from 11mm to 55mm. During operation, small movements and wrist control are preferred while the use of microscopic instruments is ideal in enhancing operational accuracy.
(2) Choosing the right magnification
1) Low magnification (2-8 times) has a wide field of view and is commonly used for locating the operating view and basic treatment operations.
2) Medium magnification (10-16 times) is often used for local fine operations, such as shoulder correction and oral soft tissue sutures.
3) High magnification (20-30 times) has a distinct advantage when dealing with microscopic, obscure, and indiscernible areas, enhancing the effect of fine operations and precise restoration during oral surgery.
(3) Appropriate utilization of dental magnifiers to protect the eyes
During initial usage, mild visual disturbance and occasional visual blurring occur due to poor hand-eye-brain coordination. Long-term use can interfere with the surgeon's binocular vision and disturb their balance of optical function. In clinical operations, it is unnecessary to maintain a zoomed-in view, which can be done with naked eyes to avoid excessive usage of dental magnifier. Before using them, systematic training, frequent checks of visual ability, and maintenance of the microsystem's adjustment are essential for long-term use.
