    Maintain a Clean, Healthy Mouth

    Oral health is an important factor of overall health. In order to maintain oral health, it is important to help prevent the growth of bacteria in the mouth. In the absence of brushing, this bacteria forms dental plaque that has been linked to various diseases that originate in the mouth, including gingivitis. One study showed that "plaque on teeth can provide a breeding ground for this growth of bacteria."1

    Using Sage's line of Toothette ? Oral Care products, you can help reduce the risk of plaque buildup in the mouth and promote oral health. Trust that you are achieving a clean, healthy mouth with the #1 trusted brand of oral care in hospitals.

    Remove Secretions for Those who Cannot Expectorate (Spit)to prevent infection

    The Q?Care? Covered Yankauer connects to your standard suction tubing to remove debris and secretions from the oral cavity. It's easy to use and the soft tip is gentle on fragile oral tissue. Our unique retractable sleeve covers the Yankauer between uses to contain any oral secretions and protect it from dirt and debris.

    Nice product

    Pros:
    • covered
    Cons:
    • doesn't separate
    <p>These are similar to what we used in the hospital. The ones our supplier and other hospitals use have no covers. We can't get enough to dispose of them after every use, so they would have to be multiple use. I don't see how you could keep it even relatively clean.</p><p>I put this as a 4 instead of 5 only because the ones we got in the hospital are the blue ones that come apart after the switch. The green ones don't do that. The blue ones are only available in large quantities, though.</p>

    <p>we pay for these out of pocket because they are so much nicer that those hard uncovered ones that we get from home health/medicare. they are a little more flexible which helps get way back in his mouth without choking him.</p>

    <p>My wife has had Strokes that slow or prevent her ability to Swallow. The Q·Care® Covered Yankauer with Suction Handle product is exactly what she needed. This product is flexible not so hard piece of plastic. It has features that I don't see on other Yankauers like an ON/OFF slide switch in the Handle, a retractable Cover to keep the Tip clean, a Handle large enough to easily grip, and cross holes in the Suction Tip to keep from hurting the inside of the Mouth. Off all I have seen, this one is perfect!</p>
