A recently developed system of mirror holders which makes the taking of standardized intraoral photographs less time consuming and more precise has been described. By fixing the relationship of the intraoral mirror to the camera, all that is necessary is to consistently orient the mirror to the teeth being photographed. Because the operator no longer has to position the mirror with one hand while holding the camera in the other hand, the whole operation of intraoral photography is greatly simplified. By producing serial slides of the progress of orthodontic treatment, a visual sequence of treatment can be prepared for viewing by patients, for educational purposes, and for showing at meetings and study clubs.
