Wooden Tongue Depressor

What is a tongue depressor?

Tongue depressors, also called a spatula, is a tool in medical and spa settings for examinations and applying ointment. Tongue depressors are generally flat, smooth, and round at both ends. Tongue depressors are even used in classrooms for "popsicle stick" art projects.

From medical settings, speech therapy, spas, dentistry and industrial applications, wooden tongue depressors are essential tools. There are many uses for these multitaskers, and we have many different sizes, thicknesses, quantities and even flavors available for all your needs. Many of our tongue depressors are made in the U.S. from Northern Maine white birch which is naturally biodegradable and has a high tensile strength. Brands such as Puritan go to great lengths to ensure that each precision-cut depressor is smooth to the touch and polished for splinter-free comfort. Puritan products are manufactured, packaged and shipped from their manufacturing facility in Guilford, Maine. Choose from sterile and non-sterile tongue depressors in infant, junior, and standard size.

As many doctors and nurses can tell you, getting little ones to willingly open up and say "ahh" is not such an easy task. Help to make the task a little easier with our flavored tongue depressors in cherry, strawberry and other kid-approved, tasty flavors. They are also great for dentists and hygienists when performing oral examinations and oral patient care. Other versatile uses for sterile tongue depressors include mixing medications and spreading ointments. Beyond the medical setting and for use as a diagnostic instrument, tongue depressors are widely used in spa settings for the application of wax for hair removal services, as well as in schools for arts and crafts projects and applying epoxy and resins in manufacturing.

What is another name for a tongue depressor?

A tongue depressor is also known as a tongue blade. Regardless of what you call it, a wooden tongue depressor must be manufactured with high quality wood so that it does not splinter and harm a patient. Puritan Medical Products manufactures exam room safe products beyond their classic wooden tongue depressor and are very aware of the requirements necessary for a safe examination. For pediatric examinations there are flavored tongue depressors that more easily depress the tongue to allow a pediatric doctor to examine the patient's throat and mouth. Non sterile, flavored tongue depressors are ideal for patient comfort.

Where can I buy a wooden tongue depressor?
