It may be obvious, but as a medical professional, you should not be breathing aerosols that come out of a patient’s mouth. This is especially true for dentists because of the high number of procedures that result in noxious dust, fumes, and tiny airborne particles from the materials used for fillings and other procedures.
Studies on Amalgam Removal
Scientific studies on amalgam removal suggest that dentists, their staff, and their patients may be exposed to higher-than-normal levels of potentially harmful mercury vapor and other contaminants. Over time, this can lead to lung diseases like emphysema, COPD, and other serious health issues.
The placement and removal of amalgam fillings are common dental procedures that are not always performed safely.
The DentAirVac system offers you a superior first line of defense against infection and diseases caused by prolonged exposure to contaminants, such as:
- Mercury vapors from amalgam removal
- Bacteria and viruses released during high-speed drilling
- Noxious chemical disinfectant odors
- Volatile organic compound (VOC) gas
- Smoke plume during dental laser and electrosurgical procedures
- Dust from air abrasion and microetching
- Prophy powder particulates
We can help you provide a safe and worry-free environment for your dental office. Exposure to harmful fumes and particulates doesn’t have to occur.
