Dental loupes

Dental and dental hygienist procedures require precision. It requires great vision and optimal eyesight. Magnifying dental loupes will help you achieve this, and adding loupes to your work routine will allow you to perform professional dental work without compromising on your own body and working environment.

Customized dental loupes

The most frequent reason for dentists and dental hygienists leaving their job prematurely is pain and injury caused by bad working environment. Fortunately, it does not have to be that way. The solution is optical. 

Dental examinations and procedures require precision, and your eyes are your primary instrument. Therefore, many dentists and dental hygienists tend to crouch over the patient to be close enough to see their work. With magnifying dental loupes, you are able to see your precision work from a good and upright working position. A position that spares your body. 

All magnifying loupes from ExamVision are designed by optometrists and customized to the individual dentist or dental hygienist. Each solution is based on individual eyesight, need for magnification as well as physical working environment such as distance and tools and facilities available. 

Improve your working environment with loupes 
One of the main benefits of working with magnifying loupes designed for dentists and dental hygienists is an immediate improvement in working posture. Without loupes, dentists and dental hygienists tend to work in crouched, uncomfortable positions that lead to chronic pains in the neck and lower part of back. 

By including magnifying dental loupes in your toolbox, your working environment will improve significantly – in the short as well as in the long term.

Magnification for dental precision 
A crucial prerequisite for performing modern dental procedure and operation techniques is vision. Of course, eyesight and age are important elements in this – but having the right optical solution, using prescription in both carrier lenses and loupe oculars is vital in order to have a clear vision. 

Having the proper level of magnification will help you perform better in all dental examinations and procedures. Therefore, we will always examine your vision and physical working environment before designing your loupes. However, in general we recommend these magnifications for dental precision: 

  • Lower magnifications from 2.3x to 3.3x are often sufficient for general dentistry, diagnostics, extractions, implants, orthodontics etc. Hygienists working with dental hygiene procedures or dental students rarely need magnifications above 3.3x. This is partly due to the fact, that most of these are under the age of 40.  
  • Higher magnifications from 3.5x to 6.4x are often suited for precision crown and bridge, composites and aesthetics, periodontal surgery, final margin verifications, complicated endodontics such as accessory canals, complicated diagnostics including horizontal and vertical fractures and similar procedures.  

All in all, we offer a range if 13 magnifications within four loupe systems. See our wide range of magnifications here.

Age affects your eyesight 
People under 40 years of age very often have close to perfect eyesight, and the eyes are able to adjust to changes quite quickly. Therefore, people within this age-range will have a large depth of field and will rarely need magnifications loupes with more than 3.0x magnification. If the eyesight is not flawless, both carriers and oculars can be customized with the right prescriptions in order to compensate. 

Turning 40, the eyesight will gradually be weakened. To be able to perform dental examinations and procedures, you will need an optical solution to compensate and continue to work with precision.
