I am an English speaking member. I just learnt a new word in German. Informal for Mundspatel aus Holz

It means Dental Tongue Depressor in English

Example : Mein Zahnarzt sagt, "Sag mal A!" ...
My dentist said "Say A!", while pressing my tongue down with a disposable wooden stick.
(I’m still only learning German, and found no online examples available to cut n paste.)

  • Hi,

    Thank you for this suggestion. I will write it on my list for terms that we still need to add to the dictionary. Great idea!
