Sometimes, with dental microscopes as with so many things, you pay more just for the big brand name when a smaller brand makes a product that's just as good, maybe better, for half the price. Check out the features on the Meiji dental microscopes below and decide if there's any reason to pay a cent more for the same instrument from another brand.
Provide better service
Spot cracks you would have missed with your dental loupe or magnifying lamp and do a more thorough job.

How can you treat something you can't see?
Dental microscopes give far more visual accuracy than the naked eye and give notably increased precision even over traditional dental loupes.
Dental microscopes allow the dentist to perform treatment they can't otherwise do (and charge for). A common example is endodontic retreatment due to infections caused by side canals, insufficient root canal fillings, or broken instrument parts.
A dental stereo microscope lowers the risk of instrument breakage since you can create better access to cavities.
Microscope magnification improves accuracy of tooth preparations and margins preventing damage to adjacent teeth and connective tissue during all kinds of dental operations and surgery.
In restorative dentistry, higher magnifications enhance visibility in:
Tooth damage, like many kinds of cracks, can't be seen without the higher magnification and improved visualization a dental professional can't get through other means.
So what features do dental practitioners need to look for in a good dental microscope?
Dentistry calls for high resolution, large depth of field, and maximum light transmission. Things that old dental loupe can't quite provide.
In the context of a root canal treatment - root canals are by no means simple procedures. Subtleties are difficult to detect without high magnification and depth of field. And the color needs to be natural (some dental microscopes don't show you the most natural color through the eyepiece) so you can easily differentiate anatomical details. If the dentist misses small details, a frustrated patient will be back for additional root canals.
Illumination plays a role in dental surgery. Not just because you need a bright field of view during any dental procedure, but also because the color of the light is a factor in the dentist identifying anomalies and anatomical variations accurately.
There are significant visualization benefits to working with a LED lighting at around 5,500 kelvin - true to life color helps you provide accurate treatment to patients.
An endodontic microscope with a camera is a wonderful tool for patient education.
Some dentists stream everything they can see to a screen for the patient to see, and talk through what they see/do so the patient has a better understanding of what's going on in their body. Microscope enhanced dentistry is a tool for your patient outcomes as well as the financial success of your dental practice.
Dental microscopy doesn't require the kind of magnification you get from a less specialized microscope. For anything from endodontic treatment or other surgical procedures to routine dental care, magnification between 3.5X and 30X is recommended. Any higher and the precision you get from a dental microscope becomes too difficult to work with by hand.
With a dental surgical microscope you aren't performing surgery on cells! So there's no reason to spend money on magnification in the 1000X range.
