Should you put your mouth over the dental vacuum?

Should you put your mouth over the dental vacuum?

Agreed W/Above: This is actually a funny question...We dentists deal with it daily, and the reactions can be hilarious! The smaller straw-like suction is gentle and great for "spitting into" or "sucking onto" to remove the water.

I woke up with a huge pimple and small one right next to it. What can I put on it that it will go away fast or minimize at least?? it's below my mouth

Gently cleaning the surface of the skin and applying acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide or prescription clindamycin help reduce the bacteria and clean up to the top layer of the skin allowing the pimples/comedones to clear over time. Good luck! ...Read more
