Dental evacuation is part of most procedures in dentistry. It is described as the process of removing debris and excess fluid from the patient’s mouth when doing dental procedures. One of the evacuation systems used in a dental office is called “Saliva Ejector.”
A saliva ejector is a small and low volume tube that is used for suctioning from the mouth during a less invasive oral procedure. During a procedure, a dentist may use the saliva injector continuously or at intervals to ensure that the mouth is clear of debris, saliva or blood so he/she can do his/her job properly.
In using a saliva injector, a dentist should advise his/her clients not to close their lips tightly around the saliva ejector to remove oral fluids. Also, place the suction tubing attached to the saliva ejector below the head of the client. Lastly, never use a saliva ejector along with a high-volume suction machine. These guidelines are based on Center for Disease Control and Prevention to avoid back-flow when using saliva ejector.
