Orange Sticks

Definition : Wooden sticks intended for medical and/or cosmetic uses. These devices are thin, flat sticks made of fine-grain wood (originally orange wood), providing a smooth finish and good tensile strength. Orange sticks may be used to apply ointments on the skin, for manicuring fingernails, or to depress the tongue during oral examination; they are also used in some biting tests that help determine proper mandible function (e.g., to assess possible mandible fracture).
