“Inhalation of airborne particles and aerosols produced during dental procedures may cause adverse respiratory health effects and bidirectional disease transmission.”
” Dental personnel and patients are exposed to tens of thousands of bacteria per cubic meter, and the potential to breathe infective material that is aerosolized during routine procedures is high.”
” Aerosols, both visible and invisible, are created during surgical and nonsurgical procedures that may include extractions, crown preparations, caries restorations, periodontal therapies, prophylaxes and endodontic treatment.13,22,32 Aerosols consist of water, saliva, blood, debris and microorganisms (e.g., bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa), along with their metabolites, such as lipopolysaccharides/endotoxins and other toxins.11,30”
