During any dental treatment, aerosols and splatter are bound to result. Reducing these contaminants creates cleaner air and protects you more effectively against common pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, mercury vapor, polishing materials, debris and cleaning chemicals. High speed suction and ventilation with HEPA filters is not enough, so here are the top products in dentistry and what we are doing to reduce aerosols and splatter:

  1. Maintaining and updating the existing building’s heating system, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
  2. An air purification system
  3. HVE and the use of an HVE system
  4. Use of rubber dams
  5. Hydrogen peroxide rinse before any treatment or exam, reducing the loads of pathogens coming from patient’s mouths
  6. Use of high filtration N95/KN95 masks
  7. Face Shields
  8. Disposable gowns
