About This Course
Dental professionals have increased risk of exposure to dental aerosols and droplets. These are caused by the rebound of spray mist on the tooth surface generated by dental instruments (e.g. turbine and powder water jet devices).
The overall goal of this course is to provide information on risk reduction, preventive measures, and infection control compliance. After completing this course, the reader should be able to:
- Identify the risks and properties of aerosol particles
- Implement measures that will significantly reduce or eliminate dental aerosol risk
- Have an understanding as to how a high flow rate of an intraoral device, cannula and technique will achieve this.
