Moisture control is a mainstay in the practice of dentistry, and orthodontics is no exception. The adjustable cheek retractor system we devised is composed of a cheek retractor, tongue guard, and connecting apparatus that can be installed and removed by the clinician alone. It helps retract the soft tissue of the mouth during dental procedures without the need for chairside assistance or major patient compliance. The clinician can therefore better concentrate on the treatment and procedures at hand. Orthodontics (Chic) 2011;12:152154.

Key words: chairside assistance, cheek retractor, moisture control
