Dental mirror, also known as mouth mirror, is widely used in dentistry to achieve indirect vision by dentists. Indirect vision is essential for certain parts of the mouth where visibility is difficult or impossible. Dental mirrors are used to create light by reflection to aid in the visibility. The head o the mirror is generally round in shape. Commonly used mirror sizes are No. 4 Ø (18 mm) and No. 5 Ø (20 mm). Typical design of a dental mirror consists of a small, cylindrical metal shaft. A metal disk is attached to the end of it to hold the mirror. Dental mirrors are biologically inert and can be autoclaved for sterilization purpose. Reusable mirrors are available in the market which can be sterilized and reused, while disposable dental mirrors are available as well.
Rise in the prevalence of dental disorders due to improper eating habits and poor hygiene practices, availability of trained dentists across the world, and advancement in dental technologies are expected to boost the growth of the dental mirror market during the forecast period. Moreover, support and subsidies provided by the government for efficient medical equipment and favorable insurance reimbursement policies are the other factors expected to augment the growth of the market in the near future. However, high cost of dental procedures and ignorance toward timely dental checkups are anticipated to slowdown the growth of the dental mirror market.
