Have you noticed the microscope hanging from the ceiling in Dr. Rankin and Wrinch’s operatory? This is a special dental microscope, which was purchased in December 2014. If you have been to an endodontist’s (specialist in root canal treatments) office, you will have surely seen a microscope in use. When millimetres matter, seeing things in size large, makes a big difference. Our microscope goes up to almost 20 times magnification. They typical dentist’s magnifying glasses view approximately 1.5 to 3.5 times only. A microscope allows even the tiniest of cracks and small anatomy to be easily seen.
