Professional Air Purification for Dental Surgeries
A number of studies have shown that dental surgeons, patients and staff are at a high risk of occupational exposure to droplets and aerosol particles such emitted from patients' mouths during treatment. This includes mercury he 2nd most toxic substance in the world.

WHO estimated a tolerable concentration of 0.2 µg/m3 for long-term inhalation exposure to elemental mercury vapour, and a tolerable intake of total mercury of 2 µg/kg bodyweight per day. Dental surgeons may exceed a daily intake of over 100µg. IQAir Dental Air Purifiers are the only air cleaners of their kind that are specifically designed to capture mercury vapour, drill aerosols, VOC's, microbiological contaminants and odours specific to dental practices.
The IQAir Dental Series consists of two models, the Dental Pro and the Dental Hg FlexVac, which were specifically developed for pollution control in dental offices.
The Dental Pro is a room air purifier that uses five filtration stages to help eliminate common dental surgery contaminants, such as bacteria, viruses, VOCs, disinfectant odours and mercury vapour. It is designed to be placed anywhere in a dental office and clean the air by constant recirculation within the surgery.
The Dental Hg FlexVac is a mobile air cleaning system with a flexible suction duct. The system is designed to capture drill aerosols, abrasion powder and mercury vapour during dental procedures such as amalgam removal. The flexible suction duct is typically placed on the patient's chest from where it directly captures drill aerosols and mercury vapours before they can spread.
