An excellent balance between magnification and field of view, 3.0x loupes are our recommended option for first time users. Perfectly suited for general dentistry, general surgery and for students.

3.5x dental loupes magnification
3.5x is good for those individuals that are after more  detail than 3.0x. Popular with those performing electrolysis and beauticians. Dentists doing many crown preparations and surgeons performing micro-surgery also use this magnification.

4.0x provides a high level of detail, suitable for endodontics and precision surgery. Most individuals contemplating 4.0x loupes decide to choose 5.0x instead.

How do I choose my loupes?

Choosing your loupes ultimately comes down to personal preference. As dentists ourselves we personally prefer TTL loupes due to the comfortable weight and significantly improved viewing experience. The benefit of the slightly larger upfront investment over flip up loupes becomes quickly apparent.

TTL or TTL HD?

We offer two types of TTL loupes to cater to a range of budgets. Both are an excellent set of loupes, but the TTL HD loupes have the edge in terms of weight and clarity.
