Don't Switch off safety

The professional handling of aerosols, ensured by adhering to infection prevention procedures, such as wearing the correct PPE and using pre-procedural mouth rinses, HVE and dental dam, allow for the safe delivery of AGPs in dentistry.

Highspeed preparation procedures require proper cooling not to risk the vitality of the patient’s teeth. Since a water jet alone does not have enough cooling efficiency, compressed air is added to create a spray. Small water droplets have higher moistening capabilities and achieve better cooling. Besides, the water spray cleans debris off the bur supporting cutting ability. Consequently, less load is needed, less heat generated and, thus, the risk for pulp tissue damage reduced even further. To avoid irrevocable damage to the tooth structure during highspeed preparation procedures, be sure to always choose a water-spray system. Don’t risk thermal damage to vital teeth: Don’t switch off safety!
