An Additional Safety Measure Recently Installed At Our Practice
Our patients are our top priority, but you probably already knew that. We are committed to the health and safety of our patients as well as our staff. After all we have been through over the past few months, we have a number of safety measures and precautions in place to ensure that our patients and staff are as safe as possible during treatment. In addition to our current measures and precautions, we are happy to announce that we have increased the safety of the dental care we provide. Continue reading to learn about the additional safety measure recently installed in our office.
Addition of the Vanguard Aerosol Machine
During treatment, there is the potential to produce aerosols generated by a large amount of water and mist, possibly containing bacteria found in the mouth, from saliva, blood, and other tissue. The American-made Vanguard Aerosol Machine helps in removing the high volume of droplets and aerosols produced during treatment. This system has an extensive medical-grade filtration system and the ability to eliminate germs and viruses. It helps to provide a clear, dry, and clean environment.
In other words, the Vanguard Aerosol Machine is very similar to a quiet vacuum that sits chairside and sucks up the additional water, mist, and bacteria that can be airborne during a dental procedure. This machine is beneficial because it helps ensure the safety of the patient as well as the dental staff. Prior to using this machine, it was possible for aerosol particles to remain airborne for an extended period of time, even hours after the treatment had been completed. With the Vanguard Aerosol Machine, the strong suction vacuum pressure and high air suction flow rate suck the aerosol droplets into the machine through the adjustable arm. The aerosol entering the machine is filtered through medical-grade HEPA filters, safely capturing viruses and other contaminants.
We understand that the past few months have been full of stress and worry for many. Don’t let lingering dental issues add to the stress in your life. In addition to the Vanguard Aerosol Machine, our office has a number of other safety precautions and procedures in place to make sure you feel safe and cared for during your visit.
