Every day, new advances are made in the dental field. These advances help make dental care safer for both the doctor and the patient. Hinsdale Dental knows how important it is to remain healthy, which is why new technology has been brought into the practice keeping health and safety in mind.
It’s inevitable that aerosols end up in the air during dental treatment. These emissions may contain saliva, blood, or other bacteria that have the ability to cause sickness in patients and staff. To reduce these risks, Hinsdale Dental has brought in two new pieces of equipment recommended by the ADA (American Dental Association).
EOS Extraoral Suction System
By bringing in the EOS system, patient and staff health has been made an even greater priority than before. The system offers various methods of attack, and viruses, germs, and bacteria are removed in the process. This state-of-the-art technology will reduce the amount of total aerosols in the air.
High volumes of droplets and aerosols produced by high-speed handpieces and ultrasonic scalers affect the safety of the environment.
EOS Extraoral Suction System removes droplets and aerosols from the origin, killing the chance of infection during treatment.
Medical Grade Filtration
This EOS system contains an H-14 HEPA filtration system. The H-14 is a filtration system made up of three-layers to stop viruses and bacteria from escaping. The efficiency of the filter has been proven at 99.995% at >0.3 microns.
For additional disinfection, a UV-C light is used. This UV-C light is medical-grade, like the HEPA filter, and kills bacteria, germs, and viruses caught in the filter. This system promotes immediate drying in the base of the cabinet allowing water vapor filtering to help emit clean, dry air from the system.
Flawless Design for Maximum Output
The American made motor is called “the heart of the system”. This motor design has a long life and will also reduce noise in the patient room.
The rear exhaust design uses water vapor filtration, assuring that clean and virus-free air is exited from the machine. Therefore, aerosol emissions are reduced using powerful suction, promoting a safe procedure space for patients and staff.
Purevac HVE (High Volume Evacuation) System
The second piece of new technology that helps reduce aerosol is the Purevac HVE—a new style of high volume evacuation tool.
Mirror Tip and Suction All-in-One
The Purevac HVE has an ergonomic design which helps accommodate a fog-free mirror. This feature allows for clearer views helping the doctor and hygienist during treatment. Smooth and rounded edges provide an optimal retraction tool. The suction of the Purevac HVE is 135% more efficient than standard ejectors. This system is 14% quieter than traditional systems and will offer a more pleasant experience for our patients.
The advanced suction cuts down on the time it takes during dental procedures, leading our office to run as efficiently as possible.
90% of aerosol matter gets reduced when using the Purevac HVE. The technology facilitates cleaner work environments.
Technology and Procedures
These units make existing dental services better and create a healthier environment. When you need dental work, we want to make sure your health and safety are our first priority.
