Disposable Tongue Depressor

Disposable Tongue Depressor


Wooden, White Birch

Wooden Tongue Depressor is a common medical device used to examine the mouth and throat. It is usually made of hard and durable wood and is shaped like a wide wooden spoon.

When using a Wooden Tongue Depressor, a doctor or nurse will ask the patient to open their mouth and then press down on the tongue to observe the inside of the mouth and throat. These tools typically have a smooth surface to avoid scratching the patient’s tongue or mouth, and they are also single-use products to ensure hygiene and safety.

In addition to examining the mouth and throat, Wooden Tongue Depressors can also be used to apply medication or ointment. Before use, doctors or nurses must ensure that they are clean and sterile to prevent infection or disease transmission.
