How to bend the saliva ejector

Hi, while i’m using the cavitron, i have trouble on how to properly bend the suction so that it catches all the water while it’s in the patients mouth. I feel like when i place the suction in the patients mouth, it keeps sticking to the patients cheek or tongue. Any tips on how to bend the suction, if you could provide pictures that would be great too 🙂 Thanks! This forum is the best!

Also, they make cushions to cover the suction head. They work wonders to keep the suction from grabbing the tissues!

I agree about the video made my Hygiene Edge. They have a lot of really helpful videos on their YouTube! I bend my saliva ejector how they show on the video and it works great! Of course there are sometimes it doesn’t work if you have a patient that guards their teeth with the lips and cheeks and if their tongue follows you everywhere, but for the majority of patients, it works well!
