Excellence in dentistry is both a choice and a journey, and magnification can be a powerful asset for those who seek absolute clinical accuracy.Treatment modalities that were not possible in the past have become reliable and predictable. Difficult cases can today be treated with a higher degree of confidence and clinical success. We can state that microscopes in endodontics represent what the discovery of X-ray radiations represented for dentistry more than 100 years ago. It is not far from the day when the operating microscope will be a common fixture in the dental office. The AAE expects that advances in magnification technologies and other treatment modalities will continue to improve endodontic outcomes in the years to come. The position of the AAE is that the microscope is an integral and important part of the performance of modern endodontic techniques. In the end, the excellent visual information can help the doctor to create more precise, more healthful, and more esthetically pleasing dentistry.
