Greater Precision

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.

Prioritizing Prevention

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. 

Dr. Linstrom using a dental microscope
“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

Dental Loupes vs. Dental Microscope See the difference below:

Magnification with traditional dental loupes enlarges the treatment area 3x (left), whereas a microscope can achieve 12x magnification (center) and even 24x (right).

Microscopes Improve Every Aspect of Dental Care

A dental microscope can also play a large role in your follow-up treatments. Dr. Linstrom can use this device to evaluate healing and confirm your procedure was effective.
