Have you visited a dental clinic lately? Are you curious about what is that weird thing that your dentist wear on his head while talking to you or while checking your teeth? Well, if it looks like the image below, then most likely it is a dental loupe.
Why dentists wear dental loupes?
Dental loupes offer a lot of benefits both to the dentists and the patients. Some of these major benefits are:
Increased satisfaction and confidence of patients
Dental loupes help increase customer satisfaction and confidence. As a patient, you normally want your dentists to use proper dental equipment and devices. With the help of these devices, your dentist can be able to navigate your mouth more precisely and focus more on the area he is working on. This will ensure you that you will receive the highest possible quality service that is expected from a dental practitioner. This also makes you confident that your dentist can be able to check your teeth thoroughly and can come up with the most accurate diagnosis of your dental condition as well as the best treatment for the identified problem.
The right magnification added with enough amount of illumination and high definition resolution enhance your visual acuity. If you use dental loupes, you can see and keep your focus on the area you are working on more clearly. Dental loupes are very helpful when you are doing more intricate dental procedures like surgery.
Normally, you would need to bend forward to see small objects in detail. Dental procedures generally take a couple of minutes or even an hour to finish. Bending forward and holding such position for extended periods of time can result in posture issues. Because dental loupes allow you to see what's inside the teeth within the specified working distance, you do not have to bend forward or stay in unnatural positions for long periods of time. Thus, improving ergonomic posture.
Reduced eyestrain and body pain
Bending forward for extended periods of time and trying to focus your sight on small details with your bare eyes can lead to eyestrain, upper and lower back pain, headache, neck fatigue, and shoulder stress. Dental loupes help reduce both eyestrain and physical strain by allowing you to maintain a healthy posture while doing dental clinician and procedural tasks.
Better quality dental services
As a dental practitioner, you can hardly provide your patients with high-quality dental services if you do not use proper equipment. For instance, if you only check the mouth with your bare eyes and by relying only on the light provided by your room bulb, you cannot be able to see some of the hidden dental problems as well as the critical components of the oral cavity of your patients.
However, with the help of proper magnification device and enough amount of light, you can be able to clearly and closely see everything inside the mouth even the most critical and small details of the oral cavity which you would typically miss when viewing with just your naked eyes. Again, this helps you come up with the most accurate diagnosis of the dental condition of your patients and provide them with the best treatment for the identified problem.
