Dr. Hale is one of only a handful of dentists who have extensive training and experience with the use of the dental microscope. What does this mean for our patients? We are able to detect decay and fractures in teeth at a much earlier stage. This means more healthy tooth structure can be preserved and tooth strength is significantly increased, as fillings can be much smaller.
Because of the superior visualization, there is a far greater certainty that ALL decay is removed before fillings or crowns are placed. Using the microscope also ensures that the final fit and finish of all fillings and crowns is more accurate. Additional benefits include less postoperative discomfort, faster healing, and better results.
