Endoscopy mouth-guards are available in a range of sizes to protect the patient’s mouth and teeth, as well as the endoscope, in Oesophagogastroscopy (OGD). Although they are available in a range of sizes which cover the vast majority of procedures, they are too large in a small number of patients with restricted oral access. This short technical note describes the use of a cut flange end of a 10 ml syringe which can be adapted as a safe mouth guard for adult oesophogastroscopy.
