Advantages Of Using Dental Loupes In Dentistry And In Biology

Although they are very portable and lightweight, they deliver the same quality image and usefulness as with the other optical magnification devices that I am already accustomed to. Dental loupes can be used not only in practicing dentistry, but also in upper level science courses such as biology.

I first came across the private eye and dental loupes when I attended a seminar a few years ago. As part of the device introduction, we were able to try using them during the event. The speaker was also very good in introduce the new product to us. And as I tried the loupes, I realized that they can really be useful not only in my dental practice but also in my biology class.


As a dentist who is dependent on dental microscope when carrying out dental procedures and as a biology professor who is used to using a microscope, magnifying glasses, and other optical instruments, I think the loupes are quite a new thing to me. However, I fell in love with them.  And so I purchased my own set and introduced them to my biology students and used them in practicing dentistry as well. 

As I use these amazing magnification devices, I came to learn and discover a lot of things about them. Some of these things are written below.

Unlike the dental microscope, the loupes are easier and more comfortable to use. Since they are worn as a sort of dental glasses or wrapped around the head, they easily move with my head, thus, giving me freedom of movement. They also help reduce my health related issues including eye strain, backache, shoulder fatigue, headache, and neck stress. They also help me see every part of my patients' teeth better, easier, and closer. Dental loupes also help me to come up with a better diagnosis of my patients' dental problems and to deliver a more precise, and accurate dental procedures.

Uses of private eye loupes and surgical loupes in my biology class

Many students tend to be apprehensive when enrolling into a higher level science course such as biology mostly because of the absence or the limited number of available observation devices which are essential in every aspect of the course. But with the presence of the loupes, many students are now getting more interested in entering my biology classes. 

Observing various microscopic subjects using the loupes gives my students the opportunity to have a better vision of the things they are working on, and provides them the chance to create an artistic representation of their observation. The loupes help students come up with a better observation analysis, too. Just like in the art class, my biology class is now getting more relaxing, stress-free, and enjoyable.

Students are getting more comfortable in doing hands-on exercises. The loupes allow them to learn things by doing actual observation and not just by depending solely on what is written on the books or what is discussed by the professor.  Given the fact that loupes are pretty more affordable than the other available magnification devices, many students are able to buy their own set of loupes. This gives them an added opportunity to study, learn, and observe small particles at home. The loupes also help me explain the subject matter to my students in a better, faster, easier, and more effective way.
