Instructions for Use
- Attach one side of the strap to the bite block—by threading the cleat through the hole in the strap—before placing the bite block into the patient’s mouth.
- Place the bite block into the patient’s mouth. Pass the strap around the patient’s neck and attach it again to the other side of the bite block.
