TODAY’S PATENT-ADJUSTABLE DENTAL MIRROR
The ADJUSTABLE DENTAL MIRROR was invented by Laurence Harlan (Scottsdale, AZ) on the 11th of June 2019 bearing patent number US10314670B2.
The present invention relates to dental devices which are used inside the mouth of a patient. The dental mirror comprises a handle and a mirror and the face of the mirror can be flipped from the first angle to the second angle relative to the handle when the tool is still in the mouth of the patient. The mirror neck had a detent nub that mate with recesses in the neck of the handle for positioning and holding the mirror in place relative to the handle. The mirror and handle connect a pivot point that is spaced away from the distal end of the handle toward the middle of the handle thereby it minimizes the space the mirror takes up in the mouth. By pushing or pulling gently against the patient’s cheek while it is still the mouth of the patient the mirror can be shifted from one position to another. Thereby, the mirror can be flipped from a position at 145 degrees relative to the handle to 90 degrees relative to the handle. To limit angular travel at either position stops are also incorporated. Thus, this Adjustable Dental Mirror proves to be a convenient one.
