How do you know if your dentist is really good? There is an easy way to know!
Most good dentists, wear a head light and loupes to enhance their vision.
Although my vision is 20/20 without glasses, I could not practice dental implant dentistry in Burbank with the same precision without magnification and lighting.
I see things 4.8 times their normal size during all procedures. This makes me do better work since I never have a problem seeing the tiniest things.
Typically dentists who wear magnification and lighting have better results. In addition, I can work through a smaller incision when placing implants or abutments.
This benefits you because there is typically less pain when an incision is made more accurately.
My laboratory technician asked me if I use magnification, because they notice the extreme attention to detail in the work I send them.
The first time you saw a dentist wearing magnifying loupes; you probably thought the person must have a severe vision defect! I hope I have clarified this for you!
