Magnification has revolutionized dentistry.

The high powered magnification of the microscope allows for pristine and perfect dental work.

Enhanced magnification can improve in the accuracy of tooth preparations and margins, allowing for more conservative treatments and can be kinder and gentler to adjacent teeth & restorations as well as the supporting soft tissues.

We now routinely use the Kaps 900 Dental Microscope adding to the state of the art equipment used in all of our dental services.

The Kaps microscope delivers brilliant optics with sharp, crystal-clear images and fine focus in high resolution detail in natural colours (apochromatic optics) for the techs among you!

The high-contrast colour temperature of the LED lighting strongly resembles daylight. In addition, the even lighting of the field of vision makes work less fatiguing. Further advantages are the long durability of some 50,000 hours and the low electricity consumption. The LED lighting is noiseless and generates only minimum heat.

The Kaps microscope manufacturers have placed great emphasis on the ergonomics since dentists often complain about neck pain and backache. The Kaps 900 ensures our dentists are always seated comfortably in an ergonomic upright position and hence are so are much more relaxed whilst using this technology.

Using this technology enables us to see the minutiae of the mouth which allows us to work with greater precision than if we were not using a microscope.

This offers some unique benefits to the most important person in the treatment room ~ the patient.


Root Canal Treatment With A Microscope

Root canal therapy treatment using the microscope is considered the gold standard of care. All Endodontists (Lukas Javorskis here at The Riley Dental Studio) are now taught to use the microscope. Finding and accurately removing the nerve of the tooth without causing unnecessary damage to the remaining tooth is critical. This allows Lukas to get the job done right the very first time, lowering any risk of a post-operative infection and keeping you out of the chair for as long as possible.


The microscope also allows for increased precision with the patient in the chair. As Lukas can now see everything in the mouth more precisely, he can minimize, if not outright eliminate, any unnecessary damage to the tissues surrounding a targeted area. This will minimize the healing time and any discomfort for the patient.

The magnification our dentists receive with the patient under the microscope allows for only the highest quality of dental health examinations. Without this magnification, the starting signs of something as simple as dental decay or as serious as periodontal disease can be missed. By catching these problems quickly and early, treatment outcomes are always more successful.

This elevated level of awareness at the diagnostic level directly leads to increased efficiency at the treatment level. For restorative dentists, those generating new teeth over broken ones, being able to spot fractures of the tooth is of paramount importance. Those fractures are likely invisible at the macroscopic level, but when under the scope, they become more easily visible. This allows us to know what is a safe place to start tooth restoration.
