Clinical Assessment of Oral Care Products: The Effect of Magnification Loupes on Index Scores and Reproducibility
A variety of assessments using various clinical indices are used by clinical assessors to measure the effects of various oral care products on dental health. Clinical indices are used for the assessment of gingivitis, plaque, tooth stain, tooth shade and gingival bleeding. It is crucial that dental assessors are able to see fine detail when carrying out assessments on clinical studies and visual magnification would seem particularly suited to this type of work whilst enabling correct posture to ease physical stresses. Dental loupes are becoming increasingly popular in practice for use by calibrated dental assessors and this whitepaper investigates the effects of loupes on index scores and reproducibility during the clinical assessment of oral care products.
