Microscopic enhanced dentistry (or microdentistry) allows Dr. Ochoa to see tiny details that are simply impossible to visualize with the naked eye or loupes, glasses with magnification in the lenses. Less than one percent of general dentists use microscopes to perform examinations. Dr. Ochoa has taken the lead in her field with this endeavor into microscopic dentistry.
Dr. Ochoa has selected surgical operating microscopes that give a clear, magnified perspective. This enlarged 3D image facilitates a more accurate diagnosis and precise treatment. Greater visual acuity with the surgical microscope’s wide range of magnification, and bright illumination, removes a lot of guess work that can take place with “eyes only” dentistry. Because many fractures and cavities are too difficult to see with the naked eye or loupes, the microscope strongly assists Dr. Ochoa in spotting the fine dividing line between healthy and unhealthy situations.
Patients can actually watch Dr. Ochoa perform treatment, if they like, since the microscope projects the image on a monitor in the operatories. Dr. Ochoa can also show you what she saw under the microscope to explain the treatment plan, removing any doubt or confusion.
With microscopic dentistry, Dr. Ochoa provides a win-win situation for both the practitioner and the patient. Higher magnification allows the dentist to see more clearly so that we can identify and correct problems early on, which saves your time, money, and beautiful smile.
