choosing the right dental glasses is critical
Choosing the right dental glasses is critical to the success of your dental career. There are some hygienists who are already using dental loupes but are still experiencing work-related pains and difficulty seeing the oral cavity. The main reason behind this is the wrong choice of loupes. Here are are a few important factors that can help you find the right pair of loupes.
  • Dental loupes are getting popular these days not only among dentists but also among dental hygienists. Many dental hygienists now realize the important role that magnification plays in the success of their career. Aside from the obvious advantages of dental glasses such they enhance visual acuity and improve precision, the ergonomic benefits that these optical aids offer are also regarded as one of the primary reasons why many dental hygienists are now using them.
occupational pain has been considered

Occupational pain has been considered as the major reasons for early retirement and injury among dental hygienists. Because of the nature of their work, dental hygienists are prone to occupational pain. Fortunately, there are now a lot of ways that can somehow help them avoid or reduce their risks to various work-related illnesses. One of these ways is to wear dental hygiene loupes when performing various dental procedures.

  • The benefits that you can get out of using dental loupes greatly vary according to the type or quality of the optical aid you bought. That is why, if you want the most of your loupes, make sure to buy only the one that perfectly fits you. Here are a few important factors that can help you find the right pair of loupes.
magnification power
Magnification Power

Dental loupes are available in various magnification power. For dentistry, the available magnification levels typically range from 2.5x to 6.0x. Each level has specific applications. As a dental hygienist who is working on general dental treatment procedures, a 2.5x magnification is enough for you. With this level, it would be easier for you to get used to working with a magnified field and at the same time, you can be able to have a better vision of the oral cavity.

working distance
Working distance

The right working distance will allow you to work in a neutral and healthy posture while still able to see the oral cavity. To ensure proper posture when working, it is important that you know your working distance before buying a pair of dental hygiene glasses.

you can get your working distance by standing

You can get your working distance by standing or sitting in an upright, comfortable, and ergonomic position and then with the use of a measuring tool, measure the distance between the upper bridge of your nose and the mouth of your patient.

angle of declination
Angle of declination

The angle of declination is critical for your neck's health and comfort. It is a measurement of how much you bend your head down to see the object you are working on. The best dental loupes have an angle of declination or forward head posture that is no less than 20 degrees.

interpupillary distance
Interpupillary distance

The interpupillary distance is the distance between the centers of the pupils of your two eyes. Each person has a unique interpupillary distance that is why you seldom find a dental loupe with fixed interpupillary measurement. You need to provide the manufacturer with the right measurement when ordering a new custom TTL loupe to make sure that the optical barrels are in their proper place with respect to your interpupillary distance.

aside from the ones mentioned above there
Aside from the ones mentioned above, there are other important factors that you need to consider when choosing a dental loupe. These factors include the depth of field, type of frame, design, weight, the field of view, prescription, resolution, and quality of optics. You also need to choose between flip-up loupes and through the lens loupes.
