View from a Dental Assistant

“Patient tongues are remarkably good at escaping from restraint and finding their way into a danger zone. LinguaGuard completely eliminates that worry! With gentle pressure, I’m able to hold the tongue back and suction with one hand, freeing up my right hand for passing instruments, handling materials, or rinsing.”
- Shannon Pace Brinker, CDA CDD

Instruction For Use

  • Spin the HVE tip as you insert it into the LinguaGuard sleeve. Spin until the vent hole aligns with the protruding tab in the LinguaGuard sleeve, locking it in place.
  • The retractor should be curved away from the tip of the HVE tip.
  • To remove, spin LinguaGuard counterclockwise to disengage it from the HVE tip vent hole


LinguaGuard should not be sterilized or reused. It should be properly discarded in a clinical waste container to prevent transmission of infectious pathogens.
