Have patient lift tongue upward. Position the tongue deflector where needed for retraction and move tongue away from working area. Place smooth side of deflector against the tongue.
Once the tongue is positioned properly, slide the mouth prop over the teeth on the opposite side of the mouth and have the patient bite on the mouth prop holding it in place.

Frequently asked questions about Dentapops
Below are some common questions customers ask us about Dentapops
We’ve found that a majority of practices use Dentapops with slow speed suction. Each Dentapop is pre-packaged with a 3.5″ Low-Vac Extension Tube for slow speed suction, making it entirely disposable for easy one-time use.
We do offer a High-Vacuum option with our EZ-Flex Extension Tube. This adaptor is a 42″ gray tube that easily attaches to the high speed suction system. The EZ-Flex Extension tube is not disposable and it cannot be placed in the auto-clave. The EZ-Flex Extension Tube can be cleaned with a sterile solution.
EZ-Flex Extension Tubes can be purchased separately in packs of 1, 3, and 6 units.
Dentapops are individually pre-packaged and sold in 20 packs, 50 packs and 100 packs. Be sure to visit our Products page for more information on quantities and how to purchase your pack of Dentapops today.
Dentapops are a one-size-fits all solution for adults and children. By easily sliding the aspirator up and down, you can easily adjust Dentapops to fit each patients mouth. If the bite block is too large, it can be made smaller by using a Diamond Bur. Also, a cotton roll can be placed inside the bite block for extra cushioning.
Dentapops can be purchased directly from us either by visiting our Products page or by calling 916-849-2637. They are also available through several distributors/dealers.
