Dental Hygienists

Magnification loupes are an essential tool for every dental hygienist. They are designed to protect your eyes and magnify the working area.

Why Would A Hygienists Need A Loupe?

  • Reduced eye, neck and back fatigue
  • Enhanced view of your instruments
  • Better visualization of the oral cavity
  • Increased patient confidence and satisfaction

Dental Loupes will enable you to move your head within this range, with no loss of focus. You will be able to see the entire arch of the mouth rather than just a few teeth.

Which loupes should hygienists choose?

Since most hygiene procedures do not require high magnification, we recommend 2.5x Flip-Up loupes for dental hygienists.

The benefits of Flip-Up loupes are:

  • Loupes can be flipped up for charting and flipped down for procedures.
  • Easy to change prescription lenses.
  • Less expensive that Through-the-Lens Loupes.

If your highest priority is the weight, then TTL may be best for you, they weigh only 2 oz.

How to measure working distance

Selecting the optimum working distance will 
ensure that you maintain the correct 
ergonomic posture and focal distance. We 
offer a choice of four working distances.

To calculate your specific working distance, 
measure the distance between your eyes and 
the patients teeth while maintaining an 
ergonomic position.
