Telescopic Loupe

Telescopic Loupe

What Is A Telescopic Loupe?

Almost every time you go for a dental check-up or cleaning, you probably notice that your dentist wears a pair of thick, strange-looking glasses. They often resemble binocular lenses with earpieces. These special glasses are called telescopic loupes and are an important dentistry tool.

Telescopic loupes help your dentist better inspect your teeth and gums because they use magnification. Read on to learn more about how a thorough dental inspection can help you or reach out to speak to our team. At Gulf Coast Dental, we’re here for our Gulfport patients.

Why Does Gulf Coast Dental Use Telescopic Loupes?

Telescopic loupes are used to see the tiny details of your mouth, giving focus to the issues with your teeth, the contact points between your teeth, your gums and even your tongue. This helps your dentist diagnose your conditions and make more accurate prognoses and recommendations for your oral health.

A telescopic loupe assists your dentist as they inspect your teeth for:

  • Stuck tartar
  • Cavities that might be forming
  • Signs of gingivitis
  • Cracks between your teeth
  • Tooth luxation or loosening

Overall, it’s clear to see how getting a detailed look at your teeth and gums helps your dentist give you the top-quality dental care you deserve.

Are Telescopic Loupes Required?

For patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist, coming face-to-face with a person wearing telescopic loupes may feel intimidating or scary. Which can lead to the question, are those magnifying glasses required?

There’s no law that requires dentists and dental hygienists to use telescopic loupes — they’re an optional tool. With that said, over 80% of dental professionals reported working with loupes. They’re a helpful tool to see the damage, tartar buildup and cracks on your teeth.

Our staff is happy to work with you during your appointment to make you as comfortable as possible. When you schedule your check-up or cleaning with us, feel free to communicate any discomfort — we’re here for our patients!
