Is it worth buying?
Is it worth buying those $7 or $10 dental kits (that come with the explorer and mirror) that you see at the grocery and drug stores?
My opinion is no. If you want to see what is in your mouth with the mirror, that is ok, but I'm afraid if you are not taught how to use dental instruments properly, you can do some damage to your teeth and/or gums.
