Utilizing a pair of dental loupes, no matter what your specialty, can both increase the quality of care and help prevent personal health issues. If you have some precision work to do in a hard-to-reach spot, you're going to be bending, leaning, and straining through the whole procedure without the proper tools. Do this hundreds of times over the years and your body will be feeling the pain. The prevalence of neck pain among dentists is around 70% and musculoskeletal disorder causes almost 30% of dentists to retire early.
Magnification is the key to enabling good ergonomics while you work. With proper magnification (and illumination), you can sit in a comfortable position at the proper working distance. Using magnification enhances your vision of the oral cavity to allow you to see incredible detail and work with higher precision. It will also enable you to more efficiently make correct diagnoses and develop treatment plans.
Loupes Help to Provide Better Patient Care By:
• Enhancing vision with the use of optics to view the oral cavity clearly
• Magnifying structures helps reduce the risk of missing a diagnosis
• Improvement in vision will assist in developing the most appropriate treatment plan
• Enables you to work more comfortably and efficiently
Using magnification in your work will put you in a position to be more comfortable and efficient than without it. Simple as that.
