The Hanna tongue spatula is a self-holding tongue spatula for use with the Denhart-Hoefert mouth gag (72.05.63) for oral interventions. The tongue spatula has detents which engage with the locking screw of the mouth gag. The Denhart-Hoefert mouth gag offers a sturdier grip than other mouth gags due to its moveable and adaptable supports, and therefore provides a firm basis for this anchored tongue spatula.
The flexible design of the Hanna tongue spatula enables it to be individually adapted to the anatomical conditions in the oral cavity
The narrowing in the middle section of the spatula allows a twisting motion of the spatula, facilitating adaptation in all three dimensions
The support of an assistant to hold down the tongue is unnecessary when the Hanna tongue spatula is used
