Introduction – Aerosols

As dental procedures and technologies have evolved, the incidence of aerosol-creating procedures has increased. Inhalation of airborne particles and aerosols produced during dental procedures may cause adverse respiratory health effects and bidirectional disease transmission. Oral healthcare professionals should be aware of these “invisible” risks within their operatories and follow recommended infection prevention protocols before, during and after patient care.
