Looking for Zip n Squeeze bags? DentaKit.com has them! Zip-N-Squeeze bags have become the gold standard for recovery among jaw surgery patients. They are easy to fill, easy to use, and easy to clean, so you can re-use them multiple times. Like the name says, you just zip and squeeze!
The magic of Zip-N-Squeeze is that no inward sipping is required (after jaw surgery you are often told not to sip or suck on a straw). By using the clamp, you can regulate the flow of liquid -- just put more or less pressure on the clamp and the liquid flows freely by itself from the bag into your mouth -- no sipping or sucking required!
The Zip-N-Squeeze "Z-200" bags pictured here are for thicker liquids (such as smoothies or blended foods). If you need bags for thin liquid, such as water, thin juices, strained soups, supplements, medications, and rinses we recommend the Zip-N-Squeeze "Z-100" bags, which are made for that purpose.
Each set of 5 bags comes with the following: 5 bags, 5 thick tubes, and 5 large clamps. Complete instructions are included. We recommend assembling and trying the product before your surgery so that you already know how to use it once you need it!
Please Note: this item is not returnable due to health regulations.

For years, jaw surgery patients have been singing the praises of Zip-N-Squeeze bags. However, there was a time when the product was unavailable due to manufacturing problems. We're happy to say that the product was recently acquired by a new company, and it's back, better than ever! I highly recommend this product to help you recover from jaw surgery.
This is a great product for anyone that has had jaw surgery and is on a puree diet. Note, the straw is large, so might not be the right choice for just after surgery, but definitely within a few days.
The only issue we had is by the time we figured out we needed this product, we really needed it. This company takes one to two days to process the order and does not provide for overnight shipping. So, order before surgery, not after.

These were great!
My 17 year old son had his jaw wired shut as a result of a trauma. I found these and it helped get more calories into him than the syringe the hospital sent us home with. That was a slow and tedious process. We could get much more into these bags with less effort. I gave one to our oral surgeon and suggested they hand these out instead of the syringe. I highly recommend them.

These work great and are neccesary
When my son had his jaw wired shut, they sent us home with the 100 size. It worked great because he had to use it in the back of his mouth. It started leaking after about one week of using it. We had to use the syringe again.
I ordered the 200 size and when it showed up he said it was a little to large for what he needed. When he got unwired a week later, he used the 200 just fine. It allowed the food to be a little thicker and him to swallow it.
Overall a great product and so important to be available for this kind of surgery. I have 2 bags that I have not used so I guess I will just have to hang on to them and hope that we never need to use them,

These bags are essentials and the product features are as presented. Closures and flow clips remained sturdy, so no leaks with the squeezing process. The wider tube "straws" were easy on the mouth. The exterior fill-line was very helpful, and the bag allowed for good portion. I reused the bags -- washed with non-creamy soap, towel-dried and stood in the dish strainer or over a small glass, as I did with the clear smaller bags. Needed to use a tall plastic container for more sturdy transfer of pureed food (like mashed potato, chicken soup). Will purchase again!
ProsDurable, and easy use. Bags do stand when filled. Good portion size. Good supply of bags at an excellent value!
ConsProduct didn't offer an assistive-device (a wire or plastic holder for bags) for warm pureed transfers. Would be a helpful consideration.
