When dealing with oral care enhanced vision is a necessary tool. Most offices are equipped with a telescopic loupe to help the dentist identify problems that could possibly be missed.
A telescopic loupe can enhance vision from 1.5x to 6x normal vision. This helps immensely when dealing with procedures that require detailed attention.
Telescopic loupes are most commonly used to help identify small areas of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease.
