With Covid-19 being mainly an airborne contracted virus, working directly in the patients' mouth exposes dentists to a concentrated threat that they spend their whole day around.
Throughout the year, the mitigation of Covid has changed and whilst you should still wash your hands for the recommended time, the majority of Covid-19 has been found to be airborne. This has pushed us to develop air purifying units to help combat the contaminants that are being breathed out.
Most high end air purification includes multiple layers of filtration to effectively kill and reduce the levels of Covid in the air. In some air purifiers, UV lamp filtration trays are used to kill all harmful viruses and pathogens.
These are now being tested in schools to help clear the air in poorly ventilated rooms and manage the level of positive cases and have been found to be highly effective too.
Air purification is a highly viable option for the mitigation of contraction rates in dentists and can remove high levels of particulates per hour which will greatly help to reduce transmission rates, however the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is also highly necessary as this can help to further protect dentists by acting as a physical barrier against particulates.
If you are considering air purification, you can calculate the ventilation rate using this formula: ACH = CADR divided by the room volume. The ventilation rate is exactly half of this. The CADR will be found in the statistics section for the product.
ACH - Air Changes per Hour
CADR - Clean Air Delivery Rate
