The Importance of Clean Air in a Dental Office
In a typical day, a dental office can see numerous patients, each with different needs that require varying types of treatment. Because many of the procedures that are performed require the use of dental instruments that produce aerosols, this can make for a potentially unhealthy environment.
The aerosols generated during a regular checkup and cleaning, dental crown placement, or a similar procedure, can remain airborne for hours or days. Should they contain harmful bacteria or viruses, members of the dental team as well as other patients can become infected.
But it’s not just airborne particles that come for your child’s mouth that can potentially cause problems. It is also the products we use to thoroughly clean and sanitize surfaces, equipment, and instruments, as these can easily contaminate the air.
Investing in a product that rids the air of these dangerous pathogens is the only answer to ensuring the health and safety of your child when visiting our office, which is exactly what Dr. Lee has done in choosing the Surgically Clean Air system.
How Does the Surgically Clean Air System Work?
While many dentists are beginning to place new HVAC systems in their offices, not all are capable of filtering out harmful toxins. The Surgically Clean Air system does more than just filter these pathogens, it actually eliminates them.
Its unique HEPA-RX filter pulls in airborne viruses, chemicals, and bacteria and removes 99% of the particles that can cause illness. The system also uses ultraviolet light to and titanium dioxide to eliminate any remaining harmful pathogens.
Once the process is complete, the purified air is circulated into the room, creating a healthier environment for you and your child.
