Dental and Orthodontics Extraction
Dental Fume and Dust Extraction Units
Modern dental techniques and technology require dental technicians to be exposed to potential health hazards.
A key issue currently is exposure to wet aerosols from AGPs - however our new DentalAIR ‘at source’ extraction units contain unique mist elimination filters as well as HEPA and blended DenCARB carbon filter technology.
Our advanced DentalAIR unit also has a UVC sterilisation filter module to help kill virus DNA on the actual filter surface (not in the exhaust as an after thought).
Another such hazard, silica dust, can be easily inhaled and has been demonstrated to lead to silicosis or lung cancer in some people. A quick solution to this problem is to install a dental lab dust vacuum. It is important for the dental and orthodontics industries to recognise these risks and provide dental professionals with the specialist extraction solutions for their application to ensure their safety in the work place.
Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) is used in making modern dentures and plates and is considered a dangerous substance if it isn’t managed properly, whilst electroplating can release hazardous contaminants into the air causing respiratory problems. A dental lab fume hood will reduce the impact of many of the materials that are necessary to offer the best dental care available but can also be hazardous to health. This is why our dental lab equipment is especially designed to help manage materials like beryllium, chromium, cobalt and nickel to ensure that the risks are minimised and healthy, clean environments are maintained by the dental industry as a whole.
