Dental professionals must assume that all patients can be infectious or carriers of disease and take as many safety precautions as possible to protect the safety of dental staff and other patients. Air quality should be checked periodically to ensure proper containment methods. The best way to minimize dental aerosol is utilizing extraoral aerosol suction system with a layered prevention approach with multiple protections. The CDC recommends specific procedures to minimize airborne dental aerosol in the Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Healthcare Settings.
Professional Protection Equipment (PPE) – PPE provides the first layer ofprotection for dental professionals including gloves, surgical masks, eyewear, and gowns. Respirators need to be used for known infectious patients.
Antimicrobial Mouth Rinse - The second layer of protection is having the patient use an antimicrobial mouth rinse before the procedure.
High Velocity Air Evacuation (HVE) – The third layer of protection, the HVE, reduces airborne dental aerosol by up to 90%.
Air Filtration System – The fourth layer of protection is air filtration systems using a HEPA filter, carbon filter, electrostatic filtration, or ultraviolet germicidal system.
Air and Waterline Disinfection – The CDC also recommends following equipment guidelines for air and water discharge for a minimum of 20 to 30 seconds on each piece of equipment between each patient.
Combining all these prevention methods will help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. Only using one method will possibly expose dental professionals to dental aerosol. For example, PPE alone cannot provide enough protection as small infectious particles can enter a mask in the leaks. Also, dental aerosol can remain airborne for up to 30 minutes possibly exposing technicians after the removal of PPE. Likewise, antimicrobial mouth rinses do not protect or reduce the amount of biofilm, blood, or viruses. Similarly, the HVE can be difficult to maneuver alone for dentists without an assistant and only reduces dental aerosol by up to 90%.
