Microscopes in Dentistry

Because Bad Things Come in Small Packages

Seeing is Succeeding
The human mouth isn't a very big place. And the structures within your mouth that concern Dr. Carano are even smaller. Furthermore, most of the things that affect your oral health are just plain tiny. In fact, in dentistry, bad things can come in small packages. Sometimes the packages are even invisible to the naked eye. Like areas of decay that need cleaning prior to restorative treatment. Or diseased areas that need treating, like gum tissues or internal layers of your teeth. Or things that need to be repaired, like chips, fractures, or fissures in your enamel. Of course, the better Dr. Carano can see these things, the better work he'll be able to do in his work for you-whether its preventive, restorative, or cosmetic.

Bigger is Better
That's exactly why Dr. Carano uses a microscope in so many of his cases. Consider a root canal situation, for example. Thorough cleaning out of debris and decay in the root canal itself is absolutely critical to the success of the treatment, and to the long-term health of the patient. Of course, Dr. Carano's task in such a case is to completely clean out all the harmful material, yet the area to be cleaned is about the size of a tiny hollow straw. Using a high-powered, illuminated dental microscope, he can clearly see all the areas within that tiny space and remove debris until the root canal areas is truly clean.

Precision is Perfection
Another advantage of microscope use is that it enables Dr. Carano to perform restorative and cosmetic procedures with unbeatable precision. Teeth surfaces and areas needing repair are seen for what they really are, so that materials and methods can be chosen accordingly. There's nothing left to guess-work or chance. And the result of this attention to detail is accuracy of fit, beautiful shaping, and a perfect smile.
