Title Date Hour
Clinical Benefits of Microscope and Ergonomics in Daily Endodontic Practice 25/05/2016 09:00 WEST (UTC+1/GMT+1)


The most important development in endodontics is the introduction of the surgical operating microscopes that have been used for decades in many other medical disciplines: ophthalmology, neurosurgery, reconstructive surgery, otorhinolaryngology, and vascular surgery. Its introduction into dentistry in the last fifteen years, particularly in endodontics, has revolutionized how endodontics is practiced worldwide . In order to work correctly with the microscope without body overload, ergonomics with microscope during the procedure should take place. The increasing use of magnifying devices in the dentist’s practice is also leading to a need to document the diagnosis and treatment, whether for forensic purposes, for the dentist’s own documentation needs, patient education, training and case presentations. Microscopic endodontic treatment with ergonomics and documentation will be presented and discussed.
