Dental microscopes from ZEISS – premium visualization and advanced ergonomics

Dental microscopes from ZEISS combine precision optics with ergonomic
operating and working comfort. Precise visualization of minute details and
fine structures enables dental professionals to improve the quality of patient
examinations and treatment. Advanced ergonomic designs optimize the clinical
working environment. Users can easily maneuver and position the microscope and
work and sit comfortably – an upright posture can be achieved during
procedures helping to protect against long-term neck and back problems and
daily pain and stiffness.

The compact, high-performance OPMI pico microscope now integrates
maintenance-free LED illumination for natural light visualization for the most
demanding applications of restorative dentistry, endodontics, implantology and
periodontics. The shadow-free, daylight quality illumination enables dentists
to see the smallest details and to better differentiate between tissue types
facilitating better patient outcomes. With the large field of view and
extensive working distance provided by the Varioskop^® option, dentists are
able to easily visualize the entire mouth – from the front teeth to the molars
– for better overview and orientation within the oral cavity.

The OPMI PROergo features advanced visualization and ergonomics in a sleek,
completely integrated design with no exposed cables and components to
interfere with work. With the power zoom and auto focus, clinicians can easily
target and discern details in the most difficult-to-see areas of the mouth,
even for root canals. Free-float magnetic suspension facilitates the
effortless positioning of the microscope for any treatment situation. With
advanced ergonomic and motorized controls, users do not need to change their
working position during a procedure or constantly realign the microscope. The
microscope is ideal for multi-user practices as preferred settings can be
quickly recalled at a touch of a button.

Henry Schein will also distribute ZEISS EyeMag loupes, renowned for excellent
image quality, outstanding comfort and state-of-the-art design. Dentists can
experience an individualized fit due to the wide range of magnification levels
and working distances available.
