Dr. Assad F. Mora discusses this operating video microscope system that brings a breakthrough to dental technology
The MoraVision™ system’s cutting-edge technology sets a new precedent in today’s dental market (Figure 1). The stereoscopic 3D visualization ushers in a new paradigm in evidence-based clinical decision-making to everyday practice. Imagine sitting up straight comfortably — free to work and perform dental procedures without looking down into the oral cavity or through oculars. Instead, with MoraVision™ dentists can view the operative field with clarity on a large flat panel HD monitor — in real time and in 3D — with accurate depth perception.
In addition, MoraVision™3D brings to everyone in a clinical dental education setting the conceptual clarity of seeing the exact magnified operative field, as viewed by the operator, either in real time or from recordings, with depth perception and in the natural state of the three dimensions. This conceptual clarity eliminates any gaps in conceptual understanding, speeding up the learning and teaching processes, and bringing unprecedented efficiency and proficiency to clinical dental education (Figures 2 and 3).
At the heart of the MoraVision™ system is an integrated foot switch designed to maximize precision and efficiency by remotely controlling its 16x zoom and fine-focusing functions.
MoraVision™3D takes vision ergonomics in dentistry from a posture-dependent fixed line of sight between the eyes and the operative field, either directly or through binocular eyepieces of loupes or microscopes, to a highly variable and posture-independent line of sight divorced from the operator’s face and the binocular eyepieces.
With MoraVision™, the line of sight can be gained from any focal point located on an 180˚ hemisphere over the patient’s face (Figure 4).
Remarkably, after placing the MoraScope™ over the patient’s torso and aiming it up at the maxillary arch, dentists can clearly see images on the 3D monitor — the occlusal surface of a maxillary second molar, with or without a mirror. This clarity allows dentists to open an access for endodontic treatment (Figure 5) and perform tooth preparations and restorative procedures or harvest a free gingival graft from the palate.
Dr. Michael P. Thompson wrote:
“Here’s a picture taken this morning, September 1, 2016, while performing an apicoectomy on tooth No. 3 using Mora-Vision. If I were using a microscope, patients would need to have their head turned to the left as far as possible. But with MoraVision, we all remained comfortable throughout the procedure.
My treatment time is noticeably less for surgeries now too. I can’t say enough good things about MoraVision!”
