Additional Information (PDF)

The Open Wide® Reusable Mouth Prop is made from a crush-resistant plastic and over-moulded with a soft latex-free material; the head and handle are permanently bonded together for safety and the device contains no metal parts to interfere with radiography.

Its’ distinctive ‘wraparound handle’ allows for full control of both the mouth prop and the patient’s mandible at the same time. As the handle curves away from the mouth it neither blocks nor hinders oral access, allowing the clinician to maintain control whilst preserving patient comfort and safety.

An innovative ‘receptor hole’ located within the core of the prop is designed to secure / hold an optional saliva ejector in place without requiring a second set of hands.

Best yet, the OWR unlike traditional rubber ‘wedges’ can be repeatedly autoclaved / steam sterilised without getting “gummy” or sticky.
