Open Wide Mouth Prop
Code: FHA-MM-OWD01
Availability: Pre-Order
The Open Wide® Mouth Prop (aka mouth rest) from Specialized Care Co*. USA was designed for those who are unable to cooperate or have difficulty with motor control in keeping their mouths open during oral care. Perfect companion product to the Surround® Toothbrush, the OWD makes oral hygiene safer and less stressful for both parent /carer and patient. Simple to use and effective in maintaining oral access, the OWD has a graduated wedge design with padded handle for stability & comfort; long handle is easy to grip and maintain control during brushing. Made from a special high-density foam that is durable and difficult to bite through, the OWD has a rigid wooden core for added stability, yet is comfortable and gentle in the mouth.

The OWD can be cleaned in hot water or dishwasher, reused repeatedly for the same person and replaced as needed. (Assess integrity of the outer foam after each use, “dimpling” from the teeth may occur as the foam depresses when bitten) For those with more aggressive bites a “thicker” version is available with 40% more foam for added strength. (OWD-T) Long favoured by Special Needs Dentists, the OWD is the preferred mouth prop to facilitate oral care in Nursing Homes, hospitals and home health settings.
