By placing a mirror behind your tooth, a doctor is able to see the back side.


When looking at your teeth a dentist may use a mirror to help see around all sides of the teeth. Even when looking at the biting surface of your upper teeth it may be difficult to see clearly without looking directly up from below. A small mirror allow the dentist to see that surface without putting his head down on your chest and looking up into your mouth.
