Dental mirror© Lisa Milella 2013



The dental mirror is not often used in veterinary dentistry, but is a useful tool as it allows you to visualise the palatal/lingual surfaces of the teeth easily. Orientation may cause confusion and the use of a dental mirror takes some practice. The mirror can be wiped across the buccal mucous membranes before use to prevent condensation occurring.

Dental mirrors are available in several sizes. A small (paediatric size) mirror is suitable for use in cats and small dogs and a larger one for medium to large dogs should also be available.
