one might pierce one's cheek and
wear therein a circular metal ring with a one way valve that would
constitute one half of a magnetic vacuum tube fitting of the same
kind as they use in dentist's office to clear saliva from the mouth.
For extra points a mechanical contraption could be configured
would use the motion of the jaw to drive a small negative bellows
that would provide a sucking force.
