How can photography mirrors help create the perfect photo?


DB Orthodontics explains why photography mirrors are crucial for creating high quality dental photography.

In orthodontics, where a fraction of a millimetre counts, precision is paramount. Whether it’s capturing high resolution intraoral photographs, conducting comprehensive oral examinations, or simply maintaining a smooth workflow, utilising high quality photography mirrors plays its part.

In the pursuit of optimised visibility, DB Orthodontics understands the critical role that superior reflective mirrors play in achieving crisp, clear images. With this in mind, we take pride in offering a range of mirrors that set the standard in the industry.

What do the experts say?

Tim Zoltie, medical photographer and head of medical and dental illustration at The University of Leeds says: ‘The key distinction in dental photography mirrors lies in their design – unlike general mirrors, dental mirrors feature a front-coated reflective element.

‘DB Orthodontics stands out by offering mirrors with a front-coated element which minimises the occurrence of double reflections commonly associated with rear-coated mirrors and assists in gaining correct exposure. In addition to this, the mirrors boast a robust material coating that withstands multiple autoclave cycles, maintaining a consistently high level of reflectivity over time.’

Superior reflection for unparalleled clarity

Unlike stainless steel blades which may lack crispness, DB mirrors provide a distortion-free, crisp reflection. Available in six designs, each mirror is tailored to offer unparalleled access to all intraoral regions. This versatility ensures that no matter the angle or position, you can capture the perfect image with ease. Whether you are using traditional 35mm film or the latest in digital photography, DB mirrors guarantee consistent quality and clarity.

Withstanding sterilisation

Our mirrors are built to withstand the rigours of sterilisation in the dental practice. They can be repeatedly sterilised through steam and autoclave processes, withstanding temperatures up to 137°C. This durability ensures that your mirrors remain in pristine condition, ready to serve you through countless appointments.

Keep them clean and safe

Keeping your mirrors clean and safe is also important too. This is why each mirror has its own luxury velvet style pouch for safe storage.
