At his Medford, OR practice, Dr. John Linstrom uses a state-of-the-art dental microscope for more precise and conservative treatment.
What makes microscope dentistry so unique?
Microscope Dentistry Is Simply More Effective Than Traditional Methods
Dr. Linstrom's advanced microscope simply provides a better view of your teeth and gums. The increased magnification means he can offer more precise and effective dental treatments.
More Transparent Treatment
In each operatory, a microscope-mounted camera allows the patient and staff to see the same incredible view the doctor sees–live–in 4K video quality. This shared live view creates complete transparency, a true quantum leap beyond the traditional intra-oral camera.
In Dr. Linstrom's opinion, the microscope is the key to effective preventive dentistry. He can identify irreversible issues before you experience discomfort or require extensive restorative treatments for a healthier smile.
What Is a Dental Microscope?
Magnification is a crucial tool in any dentist's practice. Many doctors will use loupes, which are small magnification devices typically placed over a set of glasses. While loupes can be helpful, they do not offer the same level of resolution available with a dental microscope.
This technology provides 24 times more visual information than dental loupes while maintaining depth of field, similar to a 3-D TV. Because hand-eye coordination is limited by your vision, using a microscope allows Dr. Linstrom to use smaller dental instruments to create more precise, more conservative, and more beautiful restorations for you.
“Once I got the microscope, the difference in my ability to accurately diagnose and treat patients was like night and day. It was like turning the lights on in a room rather than feeling around. It was immediately clear to me that the more magnification, the more accurate I could be.” Dr. Linstrom
