Magnification beyond doubt brings us closer to reality. Dental operating microscopes today can be rightly accepted as one of the finest advancements of technology in dentistry. Interpreted as visualizing objects at an increased size than what is perceived by naked eyes, magnification ranges from as simple a tool as magnifying glasses to the most complex ones like surgical operating microscopes. Present era magnification is previewed as an indispensable tool in fields of medicine like ophthalmology, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, cardiac surgeries etc. Since its introduction into dentistry in the last twenty years especially in endodontics, the dental practice has greatly revolutionized but unfortunately its application remains slower than expected amongst dentists. A plethora of magnification aids ranging from magnifying glasses, magnifying loupes, optical microscopes, electron microscopes, endoscopes and orascopes to surgical operating microscopes have been tried till date. Restricting myself to clinical dentistry, most commonly used magnification tools in our field are dental loupes and surgical operating microscopes.
