English term or phrase:gap speculum
The two general categories of specula are the gap or wedge type and the full mouth speculum. The basic principle of gap specula is to place a wedge in the mouth between the upper and lower molar archade to block the mouth open. You should not hesitate to buy a full mouth speculum and not a dental gap or mouth gap which get on only a jaw.
