However, the successful outcome of endodontic surgery depends to a large extent on accurate intraoperative diagnostics. Conventionally, micromirrors (retromirrors) and microprobes have been used for this purpose. Recently, the surgical microscope has been used to enhance visibility during dental procedures.
