Dental Microscopy

Advanced dental microscope facilities in Derby

A core principle at Darren Bywater Specialist Referral Centre is ongoing investment in high quality clinical equipment to enhance patient treatment outcomes. In pursuit of this, we have invested in a state-of-the-art Zeiss microscope which brings the following benefits to our dental specialists and patients:

  • Better visualisation - magnification and clear illumination allows unique treatment situations to be addressed more efficiently and with a high degree of precision
  • Superior treatment outcomes using microscopy versus traditional methods as shown in various clinical studies
  • Better ergonomics for our clinical team

Our microscope is particularly useful for the following treatment aspects:

  • Diagnosis - particularly for hard-to-see microfractures and longitudinal fractures
  • Identifying root canals and canal systems that are difficult to locate
  • Obliterations and calcifications
  • Denticles
  • Open apex
  • Perforation repair and removal of fractured instruments
  • Microsurgical apicoectomy

The dental microscope offers significant benefits not only for root canal therapy but throughout many other aspects of dentistry, demonstrably improving overall treatment quality. This is an indispensable tool for many of the specialist dentistry treatments performed at The Darren Bywater Specialist Referral Centre in Derby.
