Vairion is dedicated to providing evidence-based systems

We understand that dental professionals rely on the accuracy and reliability of their instruments. That’s why Vairion is dedicated to ensuring that all of our systems are evidence-based. Vairion works with leading dental research institutions to perform rigorous testing and validation to ensure that our devices meet the highest standards of performance and safety.

We also make it a priority to keep dental professionals informed about the latest research developments in the field of dental aerosol extraction. We regularly publish articles and white papers on our website, and we also participate in industry conferences and events to share our expertise with the dental community.

Vairion values transparency

In addition to creating evidence-based systems about our products, we are also committed to transparency in all of our business practices. We believe that by being open and honest with our customers, we can build trust and long-term relationships.

At Vairion, we are proud of the innovative and reliable systems we offer, and we are dedicated to providing dental professionals with the information they need to make informed decisions about their patients’ care and their own health.

Aerosol Containment

Aerosol containment refers to the measures taken to prevent the spread of aerosols, which are tiny particles suspended in air that can transmit diseases/pathogens and other harmful substances. Aerosols can be produced by a variety of sources, including respiratory activities, medical and dental procedures, industrial processes, and natural events.

Effective aerosol containment is particularly important in healthcare settings, where it is necessary to protect patients, healthcare workers, and the general public from the spread of infectious diseases. It is also important in other settings where hazardous substances may be present, such as laboratories and manufacturing facilities.

There are several strategies that can be used to contain aerosols, including (ordered from Most effective to Least effective):

1. Extraction/Ventilation:

Proper aerosol extraction/ventilation is essential for aerosol containment, as it helps to dilute, disperse, and remove aerosols consequently reducing the concentration of harmful substances in the air.

2. Isolation/Physical Barriers:

Isolating individuals who are infected or potentially infected with an aerosol-transmissible disease with walls, doors, windows, or other barriers can help to physically separate and isolate people preventing the spread of hazardous aerosolized pathogens.

3. Cleaning and Disinfection:

Regularly cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and equipment can help to reduce the transmission of infectious aerosols.

4. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

Wearing PPE such as masks, gloves, and protective clothing can help to reduce the risk of exposure to aerosols and other harmful substances.

Overall, effective aerosol containment requires a combination of these strategies and a thorough understanding of the sources and transmission pathways of aerosols. By taking these measures, it is possible to reduce the risk of exposure to harmful aerosols and protect public health

Extraoral Local Extraction

is a technique that is used to minimize aerosol exposure in dental clinics. Aerosols (as mentioned before) are tiny particles that are suspended in the air and can be inhaled into the respiratory system. In the dental setting, aerosols are generated during procedures such as drilling, ultrasonic scaling, and prophylaxis. These procedures can produce a large amount of aerosols, which can expose dental healthcare workers and patients to potentially harmful substances, such as blood and saliva.

Extra-oral local aerosol extraction is a way to reduce the amount of aerosols in the air by using specialized equipment such as the Ventulus series of systems to capture and remove the aerosols before they can be inhaled. This technique is commonly used in conjunction with other infection control measures, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) and surface disinfection, to create a safer environment for dental healthcare workers and patients.

1. Capture

Extraoral Local Extraction captures aerosols once they leave a patients mouth preventing the aerosols from being inhaled.

2. Remove

For the Ventulus series of systems, once the aerosols are captured by the extraoral local extractor they are then removed from the dental environment entirely and exhausted outdoors where they are rendered harmless.

3. Safety.

By physically removing the hazardous aerosols from the dental environment, both patients and practitioners achieve the highest level of protection. This is far greater than using PPE alone.

Characterization and Mitigation of Aerosols and Spatters from Ultrasonic Scalers

The authors of this research article found that ultrasonic scalers generated a significant number of aerosols and spatters, with a majority of the particles being in the respiratory range (i.e., able to be inhaled into the respiratory system). The size distribution of the aerosols and spatters varied depending on the ultrasonic scaler and irrigation solution…
