Magnification is an apparent increase in size especially by the use of lenses. History of the Magnification dates back to 1694 when Anton van Leewenhook constructed first compound lens microscope. Optical magnification has broadened the horizions of dentistry in general, and Periodontology, Restorative dentistry and Endodontics in particular. Various magnification systems used in dentistry include Dental Loupes & Surgical Operating Microscope. Magnification tools are utilized in routine dental practice for diagnosis, esthetically demanding prosthetic restorations, routine endodontic procedures, non- surgical periodontal procedures, periodontal plastic microsurgeries, implant dentistry etc for better visualization, improved treatment quality and ideal treatment ergonomics enhancing motor skills to improve surgical ability by maintaining the right posture. Minimally invasive dental procedures with ease and precision are possible today with the use of magnification in dental practice.
