The ReliaMed Wooden Tongue Depressors are wood-made depressor tools made of inexpensive and durable hardwood birch. These depressors are 3/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. They have smooth rounded edges on both ends to ensure a trauma-free experience for patients. The depressors are completely free of splinters, so they won’t inadvertently penetrate into the skin or tongue and cause pain. In the worst cases, these splinters may also enter into the deep tissues causing further damages like inflammation or infection.
The ReliaMed Tongue Depressors are designed to conduct a safe oral examination of different parts like the mouth, tongue and throat by pressing the tongue down and creating a clear field of view. They can also be used for various other purposes such as spreading an ointment or medication on the tongue. They are also safe to be used as a spoon while mixing medications.
These ReliaMed Depressors are available in four cases with a different number of individually packed depressors. They are available in a sterilized and non-sterilized options. The sterilized depressors are available in cases of hundred and one thousand depressors. The non-sterilized depressors are available in cases of five hundred and five thousand depressors. These Tongue Depressors do not have any taste or odor agents added. Since the wooden tongue depressors are made of inexpensive wood and could be unfavorable to clean, it is recommended to use these depressors for a single use only and dispose of them safely after use to avoid cross-contamination or the risk of infection.
