Is your saliva ejector tip or suction mirror loose, or in some cases, falling out of the saliva ejector (SE) valve?  If so, here’s the simple fix for that problem.  Most SE valves have a rubber tip on the end, and over time, that rubber tip gets worn out and can no longer hold anything tightly in place.  All you need to do is replace that rubber tip, which is super easy to do.  See video and photos below.  If you have any questions or comments please share.  And don’t forget to subscribe to the blog : ).
