Air Management Solutions for Dental Professionals
Dental professionals are vulnerable to exposure to contaminants, disease and infections; most noticeably, fine and ultra-fine particulate matter. This matter includes harmful bio-aerosol particles that are capable of reaching the deepest part of human lungs; and absorbed into the blood stream with significant impact to overall health.
The dental profession is mandated to sterilize instruments, disinfect surface contaminants, and use precaution protocols, but indoor air quality management has not been addressed. The importance of managing indoor air quality and aerosols to prevent the spread of aerobiological viral and bacterial infections is of tantamount importance.
