Many microorganisms such as viruses can survive for hours, days and even months on the surfaces in your operatory. The amount of bacterial aerosols increase five times1 during dental treatments. These viruses can cause respiratory infections, the most common reason dental clinicians fail to report to work.2 The Purevac HVE System helps remove these aerosols.
In a research study, HVE removed 90% more aerosols during ultrasonic scaling, compared to a low-volume saliva ejector.3
Become familiar with the Purevac HVE System. Check out some tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your system.
