Reopening Dentistry With Complete Aerosol Suppression
Ever since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the potential for transmission of virus particles through aerosol generation has had a significant impact on the delivery of dental procedures and created a heightened risk for the dental team.
For months, it seemed the problem of aerosol production in dental offices was insurmountable. That is until a team of researchers, led by Dr. Alexander Yarin, Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago, came up with a novel approach that alters the physical response of water to the rotary and ultrasonic forces that are used in dentistry.
In this breakthrough discussion with Chiraz Guessaier, Manager of CDA Oasis, Dr. Yarin presents his ground-breaking findings that may eliminate the risks posed by aerosol generation entirely. He explains the concept of risk elasticity and walks through clear video evidence of aerosol suppression. He also suggests it may not be long before this breakthrough technology finds its way into dental offices all over the world.
