AEROSOLS IN DENTISTRY

Slide What are aerosols? CREATED WITH THE USE
OF HIGH-POWERED
DENTAL INSTRUMENTS
CAN SPAN UP TO 6.6 FEET
FROM THE GROUND
CAN REMAIN IN THE AIR
FOR UP TO 6 HOURS
Diseases that aerosols
can carry
SPREAD THROUGH AIR Chickenpox
Measles
Tuberculosis
SPREAD THROUGH DROPLETS COVID-19
Influenza
Meningitis
Whooping cough
HVEs reduce 90% of aerosols, when
used with AT
Vacuum Systems

the key factor
to avoid aerosols
No particles
were detectable using a HVE
suction
(> 9.5 CFM)
A suction
(< 6.5 CFM) is too weak to avoid aerosols
A prophylaxis
cannula plus a HVE suction (> 9.5 CFM)
is neccessary to
avoid aerosols

The best protection for your team & patients is your mechanical equipment

 

The health of your team and patients is our highest priority. That's why our dental Air & Vac Systems are

equipped with essential features. Keeping each zone in mind.

Slide The use of high-speed instruments and powder jet handpieces generates spray mist

Spray mist is a mixture of cooling water, particles, powder, splashes, droplets of different sizes, saliva, blood and microorganisms

If the spray mist is not correctly aspirated within the patient's mouth, an aerosol cloud will be formed, which spreads over a radius of several meters
Spray Mist to Aerosols

Slide PROPER USE OF AN HVE CAN PREVENT AEROSOLS FROM SPREADING
WITHIN THE OPERATORY
Until the recent outbreak of COVID, high suction power
(negative pressure) was the metric used to determine
a vacuums performance, but now that most offices are
more concerned with removing aerosols, flow rate is
the true measure of your vacuums ability. Mojave uses
Regenerative Side Channel Blower technology to
achieve the key combination of both NEGATIVE
PRESSURE and FLOW.
Flow is the key to removing aerosols

Slide When using a high volume suction system and correct suction method, the spread decreases by an average of 65%.^

*The proper dental vacuum system is the most effective tool for removing airborne particles from the oral cavity.

The higher the flow, the more effective the vacuum pump is in removing airborne particles from in and around the patients oral cavity.

Slide Request Your Evaluation Now The only way to truly see how well a vacuum system has been performing is by measuring both Flow Rate and Negative Pressure at the tip of the High Volume Evacuator (HVE). With a quick visit from your local Air Techniques Aerosol Mitigation Expert that is armed with their FlowKit, they will have the ability to properly evaluate the central suction system of your practice. Set up a visit now! One of our experts will be able to recommend real strategies to maximize aerosol containment at your practice.
