HAVE YOU EVER HURT A CLIENT WHILE INSERTING A CHEEK RETRACTOR?
These things can be so tricky and can cause some discomfort if inserted incorrectly.
Here are our tips for a seamless insert:
1. Ask your client to swallow first, this eliminates any extra saliva and therefore your client is able to open their mouth without concerns of droll. When they feel they will droll a client will squeeze their lips tighter together.
2. Use your index finger to open one side of their cheek. This will give you more space to work with and the client doesn't have to struggle to open their mouth really wide.
3. Always remember to insert the bigger side of the cheek retractor first and the smaller side rests on the outer side of their cheeks.
I hope these tips help you achieve a smooth cheek retractor insert!
