ZEISS dental microscope introduces breakthrough augmented visualisation
COLOGNE, Germany: At this year’s IDS, ZEISS is presenting EXTARO 300, which is poised to revolutionise and differentiate dental practices with augmented visualisation, digital patient communication and single-handed operation. The dental microscope supports dentists in restorative dentistry, endodontics and all fields of dental surgery to achieve the highest level of performance and results—both functionally and aesthetically.
The Fluorescence Mode in ZEISS EXTARO 300 supports efficient repair of caries-affected fillings1 and is designed to distinguish between natural hard tooth tissue and the most commonly used dental composite resins. This clear visual differentiation will help target the affected area quickly, saving valuable chair time during removal of carious tissue.
Dr Marko Jakovac, Associate Professor at the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Zagreb, reported: “For removal of old restorations, the autofluorescence functionality of ZEISS helps me to locate the decay as quickly as possible and to avoid removal of healthy tooth substance.”
The TrueLight Mode provides sufficient time to finish complex modelling tasks by preventing the premature curing of composites2 under the microscope. Unlike with orange filters, the new optimised colour balance still allows the clinician to identify the relevant dental tissue.
Digital patient communication
The ZEISS Connect App enables dental practitioners to inform patients about both treatment needs and accomplished results. The digital workflow facilitates clinical case documentation and is conveniently integrated into the digital office.
All capture and visual modes can be activated at the push of a button, and dentists can adjust the unprecedented focal length of 200–430 mm with only one finger. Making ZEISS EXTARO 300 part of the dental practice not only helps improve comfort, but also makes treatment more efficient.
1 Fluorescence Mode for caries detection is not available for sale in the US, requires 510(k) clearance by the FDA and may be subject to change. Not for sale in every market.
