What are Mouth Blocks and What Are They Used For?

Maintaining good oral health is essential to the overall well-being of any individual. Daily care can help prevent problems like painful cavities and infections before they arise, and helps avoid pain when eating and drinking. 

Oral hygiene routines are made easier by using Confident Care’s Mouth Block. It’s ideal for those who have difficulty opening their mouth or can’t fully cooperate during oral hygiene procedures due to behavioural issues or lack of motor control.
