2014 Top Dentist Brings Microscope Dentistry to the Eastside Seattle Area

Issaquah, Washington   October 22, 2013   Health News
(PRLEAP.COM) Issaquah, WA — Dr. Richard Calvo, DDS, recently selected by his peers as a 2014 Top Dentist in Seattle Met magazine, has announced the opening of his new practice, Eastside Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, which offers a highly beneficial form of dentistry known as microscope dentistry.

Practiced by less than 1 percent of all dentists, microscope dentistry is an innovative and highly scientific form of dental care. This special type of dentistry is proven to lead to the earlier detection of dental problems and to allow for more effective treatments for all types of conditions.

During examinations and procedures, many dentists use magnifying glasses known as dental loupes to make the teeth and gums easier to see. In microscope dentistry, the traditional dental loupes are replaced with a high-powered microscope. With this device, dentists like Dr. Calvo can see a magnified image of the teeth and gums up to 20 times the size of the image produced with dental loupes.

When used as a part of dental treatments, the dental microscope allows Dr. Calvo to work with greater accuracy. Because he can pinpoint the exact area that requires treatment, he is often able to eliminate the use of painful injections into the gums. For cosmetic dentistry procedures, the magnification leads to more natural looking results.

Microscope dentistry requires an advanced level of study that the large majority of dentists do not choose to pursue. Since Dr. Calvo has completed this rigorous training, he is uniquely able to offer microscopic dentistry services to the Eastside Seattle area. His practice, Eastside Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, will serve all communities in the Eastside area, including Issaquah, Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland and Renton and will offer a full range of general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry services.
