How do they get you to open your mouth during wisdom teeth removal?

When you’re asleep and under anesthesia, do they manually pry your mouth open? 

Dumb question, I know.

    A metal reinforced rubber-covered "bite block" is put in place on the opposite side of your mouth, blocking your mouth open.

    Ask your dentist to show you a bite block.

    They put in a hard rubber block on the other side of your mouth.
