Air Pollution Control Solutions for Dental Laboratories

Air Filtration for Dental Laboratories

All dental laboratories should have effective air pollution control systems in place. From fine and ultra-fine dust particles created by grinding, polishing and sandblasting, to chemicals released during polymerisation, there are a wide range of pollutants that are dangerous to owners, employees and customers alike.

 

Commercial Air Filtration works with Dental Laboratories to improve air quality, using air pollution control systems that are designed to capture and retain even the smallest pollutants. They are the only systems in the world to offer a whole system performance guarantee for their effectiveness. Our systems are an important addition to your existing equipment and provide you with an even greater level of air quality, being able to capture pollutants as small as 0.003 microns.

To discover how your laboratory can benefit from cleaner, healthier air, please contact a member of our expert team on 020 3176 0524, or email: Info@CommercialAirFiltration.co.uk

Chemical, Odour and Particle Pollution in Dental Laboratories

Without adequate filtration systems, those working or visiting dental laboratories will be routinely exposed to several or more of the following contaminants. Exposure to these contaminants can lead to respiratory conditions such as occupational asthma, or aggravate existing respiratory conditions. These contaminants can also result in cancer, pneumoconiosis and silicosis. It is therefore vital that these contaminants are captured before being inhaled.

Acrylic Compounds:
    • Methyl methacrylate (MMA)
    • Triethyleneglycol di‐methacrylate (TEGDMA)
    • Ethyleneglycol di‐methacrylate (EGDMA)
    • 2‐hydroxy‐ethyl‐methacrylate (HEMA)
Chemicals:
    • Benzoyl peroxide
    • Bisphenol‐A
    • Butylene glycol
    • Corundum
    • Ethyl acetate
    • Glutaraldehyde
    • Hexane
    • Hydroquinone
    • Kaolin
    • Nitrocellulose
    • Oxides of titanium, iron, and boron
    • Silica
Metals:
    • Beryllium
    • Boron
    • Cobalt
    • Chromium
    • Molybdenum
    • Nickel
    • Tantalum
  • Plaster
  • Porcelain
  • Silica
  • Quartz

Carcinogens in the Dental Laboratory

top of page ^

carcinogens in the dental laboratory Work in a dental lab involves handling many different kinds of materials and – as in any kind of lab work – the dental technologist may potentially be exposed to carcinogens in the dental laboratory, consisting of various dusts and chemical fumes. The problem may be compounded where the dental technologist works in a confined space and in conditions of poor ventilation.

The Dangers of Dust in the Dental Laboratory

top of page ^

Dental Technologist A recent study analysed the size range of particle which dental technologists may come into contact with during the course of their work. A number of blocks of composites used in dental prostheses were ground and the dust thus generated analysed. The size range of this dust extended down to the UFP level, proving that a potential health hazard does exist in the dental laboratory setting.
