  • Richmond Dental and Medical’s Soft Biteblock™ helps protect the airway device (Endotracheal Tube or Laryngeal mask airway), teeth and tongue during emergence. The Soft BiteBlock’s dense cylindrical shape allows for consistent compression performance when placed between a patient’s molars with the tongue positioned medially.

    Pressure is exerted on the back molars instead of the front teeth

    Consistent Product Density
    Maintains consistent compression performance

    Packaged ready to dispense, no more rolling and taping gauze
    Saves labor, costs, & time

    Not made with natural rubber latex
    Reducing risk for allergic reactions

    100% medical-grade, purified cotton
    Absorbent, USA grown cotton
