Aerosol in dentistry: hazards and management for the patient and operatorRegistration as a ICCO Member > Registration as a Guest >
Being the first systemized source of clinical evidence on the topic, the symposium introduces the participant to materials, engineering, dental and biological considerations of aerosol production during routine dental practice, by considering the composition of the aerosol produced and the wide arrays of its effects in various organs, systems and the homeostasis of the organism. Within the scope of these axes, a wide variety of topics are analyzed, such as spreading of aerosol with the use of high speed or low speed handpieces in wet and dry conditions, nanoparticle characterization in aerosol, airborne bacteria during grinding and ways to manage them, pulmonary/respiratory stress and distribution of the particulates in the respiratory system, xeno-estrogenic action of ground polymers, ways to efficient debond brackets, guidelines for proper, lingual fixed retainer bonding and the future of materials in the field which may offer programmed debonding by introducing temperature variations, irradiation, expandable fillers, and magnets among others. The analysis of the evidence on the topic along with the illustrated case material, assist the participant in formulating principles of management of the entire spectrum of challenges encountered in everyday dental practice.
