Watch how dental aerosols contaminate the air and surfaces in this exclusive video.
Not only is someone at risk of inhaling infectious particles, but these particles remain suspended in the air, settle on surfaces and are often re-aspirated.

Bacteria was found in the air in an amount exceeding the proposed safe value, which created a potential risk both for doctor and patient.1
Streptococcus and Staphylococcus bacteria is prevalent in the air during dental surgery. Other studies indicate that 85-90% of these bacteria are Streptococcus bacteria typical for the oral cavity.2
Using an air purification system like VidaShield can significantly reduce potentially hazardous bioaerosols created during dental procedures.
