Protecting the Patient, Assistant and Dentist from Mercury Fumes

Consider a high vacuum held at the chin for the removal of mercury fumes created during the drilling of mercury containing amalgam in the tooth. An exhaust hose should direct the mercury fumes outside to a safe place away from the patient, the assistant, and the dentist.
