What is microscope dentistry?
Unlike your medical doctor, who you see when you are sick and injured, dentistry is all about prevention. Consistent visits to your dentist every six months help us monitor your oral health and detect any issues as early as possible. This gives you the opportunity to utilize less invasive treatment procedures with more success.
Another one of the ways we detect many dental conditions early on is through microscope dentistry. Dr. Mapes uses a CJ-Optik Flexion microscope, which is extremely powerful and offers an extreme close-up view that helps him diagnose certain problems such as tooth decay or fractures very early on.
With the advantage of time on your side, you can make educated decisions about your oral health and select the treatment procedures that are right for your needs. This saves you money, as you’ll be able to utilize less complex procedures to maintain your oral health. This is just one of the ways we use advanced technology to help our patients be proactive.
