Abstract

The need for better visualization in the field of endodontics has been an ongoing challenge, the unaided vision is inadequate. In most instances to properly evaluate the endodontic procedure being performed enhanced illumination and magnification as adjuncts for posterior surgery is used. The introduction of aids to enhance vision in endodontics is performed and researchers found that they paralleled those of many medical specialties. The combination of improved lighting and magnification has been provided by several means like fiber optic headlamps and loupes, the surgical operating microscope, and most recently the orascope. This review puts a light on the armamentarium used for magnifications in endodontics since ages.
