The surgical operating microscope offers increased magnification and illumination for all procedures. Whether we are evaluating the outside surface of a tooth for a crack, locating miniscule root canals, removing a broken file from a root canal, ensuring the canals are thoroughly cleaned, or filling the root canal systems, the microscope benefits treatment. Even the smallest detail is brought clearly into view, not only for the doctor and assistant, but also for the patient via specially mounted video monitors.
