As it works with tiny anatomy, dentistry is restricted to small operating space. Clinicians who handle complex cases thus seem to require stronger visual acuity. In order to bridge the gap between the human eye and the microscope, numerous magnification tools have been developed over time. In actuality, modern gadgets that appear to be more useful and handy for application, such as loupes and dental operating microscope, have essentially replaced tools like an magnifying glass, and intraoral camera. This review aimed to clarify the use of magnifying equipment in dental procedures in order to enhance precision, handling, and thoroughness while eliminating procedural errors.

In the modern world, there are so many recent advances in diagnosis in conservative dentistry Endodontics. It is enhanced by newer technologies. The style of this improvement is targeted towards increasing the objectivity sensitivity and reproducibility of the pulp tests while decreasing the patient’s discomfort. Methods like Pulse Oximetry, Laser Doppler Flowmetry, Ultrasound Doppler, Dual Wavelength Spectroscopy, Photoplethysmography are being developed and evolved to get adapted to the current clinical setting which may be of great use to the modern endodontist. These new methods fulfill the necessity of choosing the best tools for a good diagnosis. The aim of this review therefore was to assess the utility of some devices and techniques utilized in endodontic therapy to make the correct diagnosis
