Workshop title – Beginner’s guide to Microscope
Mentor for workshop- Dr. Garima Poddar
There are multiple benefits of using a dental microscope in dentistry. Use of a dental operating microscope is immensely helpful in visualizing fine details within our patient’s mouths and thus of great value to work with a high degree of accuracy. While doing endodontic treatment also, a microscope provides with deeper depth of focus and good illumination which acts as a boon during the procedures. This workshop would act as a guide to beginners who want to inculcate microscopes in their practice. The workshop participants would learn how to use a microscope, posture and correct seating positions while working with a dental operating microscope and also how to adjust the focus, depth of focus and other nuances of using a microscope.
Lecture topic- Role of magnification in predictable retreatment
Speaker – Dr. Garima Poddar
Endodontics in the past was based more on feel and less on sight. Earlier, radiographs and tactile sensation were the key tools utilized to perform root canal treatment procedures and other endodontic surgical procedures. With time there has been advancement in the field of magnification which has been immensely helpful in both endodontic treatment and retreatment. Specially while performing a retreatment procedure, magnification and good illumination, plays a very vital role. It makes even many complicated retreatment procedures convenient to perform. This presentation emphasizes upon the role of magnification in predictable endodontics and how we could use magnification in various retreatment cases in endodontics.
