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.

Key Features of the Open Wide® Disposable Mouth Prop:

  • Wedge-shaped head accommodates most patients mouths and can be positioned ‘sideways’ or flat if oral opening is limited by physical or behavioural issues.
  • Made from a special high-density foam with rigid inner wooden core to add stability and strength, making it difficult to bite through.
  • Graduated wedge design has long, easy to grip foam padded handle for stability, control & comfort.
  • Durable, user – friendly and highly effective in maintaining oral access making oral care safer for both patient and clinician / carer.
  • Handle-end can be used for cheek retraction to facilitate oral assessment.
  • Mouth Prop can be cleaned in a dishwasher or hot water for reuse with same patient and replaced as needed.
  • Available in a ‘standard’ size or “thick” version, which has 40% more foam to withstand more forceful biting pressure in those with aggressive biting tendencies.
