Ultrasonic scaling anteriors seems to be the hardest when it comes to water management, that’s for sure! I keep the suction really close to where I’m scaling to try and minimize the water. Sometimes giving a patient a “facial” is inevitable though. I give patients a tissue or paper towel and give them a heads up that it might get a little bit wet and apologize for their “free facial.”
 
When scaling anterior surfaces toward me, I tend to sit at the 8 o’clock position. When scaling the surfaces away from me, I tend to sit at the 12 o’clock position.
