The Open Wide® Disposable Mouth Prop (a.k.a. Open Wide® Disposable Mouth Rest) is a helpful tool for those who can’t fully cooperate with oral hygiene / dental procedures due to behavioural issues, lack of motor control or too weak to keep mouths reliably open. This simple, user-friendly device is gentle in the mouth and easy on the user’s hands.
Made from high-density foam and a rigid wooden core for stability, it’s sturdy enough to resist biting pressure and has enough “give” to be comfortable for the person receiving care. The mouth prop also has a long handle for safe and easy control.
The Open Wide® Disposable Mouth Prop is designed for dental professionals, healthcare providers and with training, home carers; considered a ‘disposable / single use’ item in the dental office, it can be cleaned as directed and used as a “single patient use” device given to a trained caregiver / parent to assist them in providing daily oral care.
Long favoured by Special Needs Dentists, the Open Wide Disposable Mouth Prop is the preferred mouth prop for special needs patients in dental practices, nursing homes, hospitals and home health settings; the perfect adjunct to the Surround® Toothbrush, it is an indispensable tool in helping to provide care for those patients needing assistance with oral hygiene.
