Dentistry involves more than just improving the patient's oral health. The photographic record is also an essential aspect of dental practice.
Through it, the dentist can have a record of every restoration performed. It can also be used to compare before and after images. Lastly, it plays an essential role in the planning of complex cases.
However, due to the camera size and the small space inside the mouth, the dentist can have a hard time trying to take photos of the occlusal and palatal surfaces.
However, it is possible to photograph these areas using dental photography mirrors.
As the name suggests, dental photography mirrors are specialized mirrors that the dentist can use inside the mouth. These mirrors reflect those hard-to-reach areas and make it possible to take pictures of them.
Nonetheless, the dentist must learn how to use them properly to take good images. Therefore, the dentist has to figure out how to angle the mirror and the camera perfectly. This ensures that only what is intended to be photographed appears in the picture.
Dental photography mirrors come in different shapes and sizes. This way, the dentist can choose one that fits inside the patient's mouth. Also, they have multiple coatings, such as chromium or titanium.
