What are dental loupes?

Dental loupes are basically magnifiers worn in front of your eyes. They have a fixed magnification, and work at a fixed focal length.

Advantages of Dental Loupes

  • Loupes improve your quality of work by allowing better visualisation through magnification.


  • Loupes aid in indirect vision as your field of view is focused on the mouth mirror.


  • Loupes also improve posture by stabilising your working position at the fixed focal length.

A final note..

"In spite of their significant cost, the relatively long learning curve associated with their use, frustrations during use, their occasional need for being replaced and their peculiar appearance to patients, magnifying loupes assist all types of clinical dentists in producing higher-quality dentistry. Seeing better also means decreasing operating time. Properly fitted loupes also can improve posture during operating and reduce muscle pain in the shoulders, neck and back. Working under magnification is useful, and clinicians should give strong consideration to adopting the concept.“
