Fume Extraction For The Dental Industry 

Our fume extraction systems are designed to eliminate harmful dust particles and fumes that are caused by the dental laboratory manufacturing process. Learn how Purex can support applications within the dental industry with the help of our recommended machines. 

The dental industry produces harmful vapors from Zirconia ‘Zr’ dust and monomer fumes. Monomer fumes are represented by their molecular structure. For example, the monomer for polyethylene is ethylene, which is represented as H2​C=CH2​. Both pose a significant health risk to workers in dental labs through various dental applications. At Purex, our extensive range of dental fume extractors is designed to combat ultrafine particles and dust, providing a safe working environment. Learn how our fume extractors can support different dental applications.

Typical Applications

Dental Milling

Dental milling is an automated process used to create prosthetics like crowns and fillings. This small cutting machine produces ultrafine particles that are less than 5 microns, meaning they are almost impossible to be seen by the naked eye.

Similarly, tools like high-speed drills and polishers can create ultrafine particles made from enamel and dentin. These ultrafine particles can cause a number of health problems, including:

  • Irritation to the eyes, skin, and mucous membranes
  • Allergic dermatitis
  • Asthma
  • Lung damage

Dental Composites

Resins are often used to design and produce dental composites that are necessary to repair the structure of damaged teeth. However, monomers used in dental composites, can release toxic fumes when vapourised. As a result, these harmful monomer vapours can cause irritation to the respiratory and nervous system.
