Clinical challenges in dentistry

Better diagnosis of fissures and cracks

Visual diagnosis has its limitations because of the resolution of the human eye. This invisible eye gap is a handicap when it comes to visual fissure and crack detection.

Tooth preparation challenges: Common errors and easier diagnostic

Avoiding over-reduction or under-reduction

Eye limitation has a direct impact on the functional durability of indirect dental restoration. Using optics improves the diagnosis, preparation, and cementation protocol.

Removal of old defective restoration

High magnification through the operative microscope, is essential for enhanced longevity, aesthetics, and functionality in everyday restorative practice. Every removal of dental materials from the tooth diminishes dental structure.

Dealing with calcified chambers

Dealing with calcified chambers

Calcified chambers can be difficult to visualize due to their narrow and intricate nature. This can pose a challenge during treatment.

Root canal location - a dentistry challenge

Locating root canals

The root canal anatomy of teeth can be very variable and missed canals are a major cause of failure of root canal treatment.  

Non-surgical re-treatment

Non-surgical re-treatment

Endodontic re-treatment is considered to be one of the most challenging procedures in endodontics. In these situations, the OPMI is essential.

Mucogingival surgery

Mucogingival surgery

Executing mucogingival surgery using the naked eye can be challenging. The absence of magnification potentially causing collateral tissue trauma. Magnification tools can overcome these challenges, leading to successful outcomes.
