A Clean and Relaxing Dentist Experience
When you walk into any healthcare facility, you should feel confident that you are in a safe, clean environment where you will only become healthier. However, at a dental practice, where your mouth is open for long periods of time, patients need a guarantee that the area they are in is clean and safe for their body. We are providing our patients with that guarantee with our new air purifiers, so you can breathe a (clean) sigh of relief during your appointment.
What do we really Breathe in the Air?
The pollutants in the air that we breathe are main cause of allergy symptoms and sometimes leading to serious health complications.
Some impurities are visible to the naked eye, they are less harmful, but still concerning, and make up to 10% of the pollutants in the air, including:
o Dust and Dirt
o Skin Cells
Minuscule organisms, which can be more serious pollutants make up the remaining 90% of air impurities, including, but not limited to:
o Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
The dangers of bacteria, fungus, mold and viruses are well-known, but VOCs are harmful, man-made chemical compounds that can be found in perfumes and air fresheners. All of these air impurities can make breathing difficult and cause serious, sometimes chronic, illnesses.
Our Air Purifiers vs. Impurities
Cascade White Air Purifier and Jade Air Purifier have shown resounding results. With a virus organism in the air, the test proved the air purifier removed 99% of the virus in less than 15 minutes. The same results were found in cases of fungal and bacterial organisms, making our purifiers perfect choices for our dental practice.
These purifiers are designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C light) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms. As air is forced through the device, it passes UV lamps, which directly attempt to disinfect the air by means of germicidal radiation.
