Aerosol Control

Chicago Family Dentists

At Smile Design Studio of Hyde Park, LLC, we always put our patients’ safety first. One of the ways that we maintain the safest and most hygienic environment possible is our use of continuous suction to reduce aerosols and prevent your exposure to contaminants. 

What is an aerosol?

An aerosol is a tiny solid particle, liquid droplet, or gas that can remain suspended in the air for a period of time. Aerosols can present themselves when performing dental procedures with high-speed hand-pieces, ultrasonic scalers, or other instruments. We manage these aerosols to provide a healthy, clean treatment process for our patients.

How do we manage aerosols?

One of the best ways to reduce aerosol spread is by utilizing a device with continuous suction capabilities. At our practice, we utilize a Zyris™ product called Isolite. This product allows us to continuously evacuate saliva and debris in order to manage moisture and humidity. It also provides excellent isolation and airway protection to even further mitigate the unwanted spread of these aerosols.

 

Your safety and comfort have always been and will continue to be our first priority.
