Understanding the risk posed by aerosols will help minimize the possibility of infection transmission during dental procedures.
Aerosol control with extraoral aerosol suction machine such as GS-E1000 and SC-V102 in confined, poorly ventilated spaces where the air exchange with filtration cannot be successfully applied presents a challenge.Another hurdle is to decrease the indoor concentration of bioaerosols.While some indoor air purification techniques aim solely at reducing aerosol concentrations, others are designed to inactivate viable bioaerosols.Strong evidence demonstrates ventilation in a practice setting can impact the spread of airborne infections.
Due to the risk of infectious transmission posed by dental aerosols, transmission-based precautions should be a key element of daily practice. Patients and practitioners are regularly exposed to tens of thousands of aerosols generated during procedures,30 and this exposure increases the potential for respiratory infections.To ensure patient and provider safety, oral health professionals should abide by the latest CDC guidelines and recommendations. This includes using HVE or an isolation-and-evacuation device, providing preprocedural mouthrinses, maintaining dental unit water quality, and wearing proper PPE.To further reduce risks and improve air quality, air cleaning systems can be employed.Ultimately, combining multiple methods may be the most effective approach for managing dental aerosols.
