1. The ornamental design for a throat shield for dental procedure, as shown and described.


FIG. 1 shows a front view of the throat shield for dental procedure of my design;

FIG. 2 shows an oblique perspective view of my design;

FIG. 3 is an enlarged view of a portion of FIG. 2; and,

FIG. 4 shows the throat shield for dental procedure of my design disposed in the mouth of a patient during a dental procedure.

A rear view of my design is omitted, because it is a mirror image of the front view shown in FIG. 1.

Top, bottom, left and right views of my design are omitted, because the top, bottom, left and right surfaces of my design are flat and devoid of surface ornamentation.

The evenly-spaced (dash) broken lines in FIGS. 1-4 show a representative mesh material and forms no part of my design.

The short dash-long dash-short dash broken lines in FIG. 4 show the environment, in which my design is used, and form no part of the claimed design. A rear portion of the patient's tongue merely blocks the view of a central lower edge portion of my design in FIG. 4 and forms no part of my design.

The thickness of the throat shield for dental procedure forms no part of the claimed design.

The throat shield of the present design is intended to be used during a dental procedure by being placed in the back of a patient's mouth in order to prevent objects, such as fillings, parts of teeth, parts of dental equipment, etc., from falling into the patient's throat.
