Why dental companies need fume extraction

Dental procedures are a dreaded yet essential part of everyday life – however, did you know that the fumes caused by dental equipment can cause harm to both the environment and the human body?

Zirconia and Monomers are toxic particles that are present in the vast majority of dental labs, and these gasses are detrimental to human health. Having contact with these fumes can cause health related illness such as itchy skin and colds, lung damage and even occupational asthma. Prolonging exposure to these dangerous gasses is detrimental to dental technicians in the long term, though these small particles are invisible to the naked human eye. In our helpful guide, we will discuss the harmful effects of these toxins and how effective fume extraction is essential for dental companies.

How does dental machinery release harmful gasses?

Dentistry equipment such as drills, dental scalers and other equipment all release toxic fumes – these gasses are called monomers and can have a detrimental impact on dental technicians’ health. Monomers can cause adverse health advice such as: irritation to the eyes, nose and skin, as well as more serious effects, including liver toxicity, damages to the nervous system, and fertility issues. Fume extraction works to safely dispose of these particles, lessening the risk of these health issues for staff.

These fumes are not only detrimental to human health, they also impact the dental equipment used as well. The particle build-up on the machines can cause downtime for your company – as monomers hinder the reliability of your dental equipment by causing technical issues.
