Our dentist and team are dedicated not only to your smile but your safety and overall health. To ensure your protection while you are in our office, we use an extraoral suction unit. Dentistry can pose certain health risks for both patient and the doctor due to close proximity during treatment, oral contact and the development of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), bioaerosols that are produced by dental procedures. VOCs can cause symptoms in the body such as nose or eye irritation, shortness of breath, headaches, nausea and more.
An extraoral suction unit prevents these aerosols from being released by extracting and filtering them at the source. This device protects both patient and doctor from bacteria, viruses, mercury vapor and other airborne contaminants. This reduces the chance of cross infection between our team and our patients, so everyone can stay healthy. At our office, we are committed to both your oral and overall health.
