During your visit to Knollwood Dental Group, our dentist or hygienists may wear telescopic loupes during your treatment. Telescopic loupes look similar to traditional eyeglasses, but they have powerful lens or magnifiers. By using telescopic loupes in Mobile, Alabama, Dr. Knollwood Dental Group and his team are able to get a closer look at your teeth, gums, and oral health. This magnified look also helps us catch problems early on and provide early treatment. We welcome you to contact our office at 251-666-3982 to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.
Having enhanced and clear vision is essential to providing high-quality dental care. Telescopic loupes are a type of small, binocular-like glasses with powerful magnifiers. With various magnifications, our dentist can use telescopic loupes to improve his vision by 1.5 to 6 times. Telescopic loupes can be used during both traditional checkups to look for minute signs of oral problems, and during procedures to provide more accurate and precise results.
There are many advantages to using telescopic loupes while performing dental care, including:
- Providing more precise diagnoses
- Detecting small signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer
- Enabling us to catch problems and provide treatment early on
- Helping our patients avoid problems that could require complex and costly procedures in the future.
At our practice, we may use telescopic loupes at any time to ensure that both your routine checkups and scheduled procedures are as efficient and accurate as possible. We want to ensure that your smile receives the attentive and detailed care it deserves. If you would like to know more about telescopic loupes, we invite you to call or visit our friendly practice today. We are always happy to help!
