What Are Tongue Depressors?
Tongue depressors are tools commonly used in medical practices to depress the tongue and allow for examinations of the mouth and throat. Most commonly made of wood, there are versions available in adult and junior sizes. They allow you to get inside of the mouth and secure the tongue to view the tonsils and throat area. They're beneficial to doctors and dentists in private practices and hospitals.

Tongue depressors can also be used to spread ointments, mix medications, or make splints. They are single-use items and come either individually wrapped or loose with no wrapping.

What Are Medical Penlights?
Diagnostic medical penlights are small lights that give off a high-intensity beam for efficient illumination. Medical professionals use penlights as an assessment tool for small body parts, like the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. They are most often used for pupil tests. Medical penlights are bright, small, and convenient! Some medical penlights come with side clips that allow you to attach the light to your pocket for portability. Some penlights are disposable for convenience, while others are reusable. They're powered by batteries, which are usually included in the listing.
