New Dental Air Filtration Systems

The quality of the air in our dental surgeries is paramount and we are dedicated to keeping you safe, one mouth alone can be host to over 350 kinds of pathogens, which can float in the air for hours. This has been a concern surrounding COVID-19. We care for our patients and know they trust us to be the best. As well as our air exchange air conditioning system we have invested in improving the air quality in our centre for our patients and our teams. You will notice some new kit around the practice at your next visit. The high-performance DentAir system from Bryant Dental uses the very latest and trusted technology in air purification to eliminate contaminants in the room, quickly and effectively, keeping you and us as safe as possible.

What does it do?

Kills Viruses and bacteria with high performance UVC technology and decontaminates the air DentAir has over 5000 inlets 360º around the unit.

What is UVC?

UVC refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200 – 280 nanometre’s (nm). Light in the UVC wavelength can be used for disinfecting water, sterilizing surfaces, destroying harmful micro-organisms in food products and in air. Its innovative design offers a 5-stage filtration process and reaches over 99.99% sterilisation rate. The system draws in and filters out any harmful bacteria, viruses, volatile organic compounds, and mercury vapour.

The unit contains a

  • Pre filter
  • HEPA filter
  • Carbon filter
  • UVC lamp

What is a HEPA filter?

HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. A HEPA filter is a type of mechanical air filter; it works by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles such as pollen, dust mites and particles.

What is a carbon filter?

Carbon air filters are the filters most used to remove gases. They filter gases through a bed of activated carbon (also called activated charcoal) and are usually used to combat volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from common household products.

The air quality is monitored by the unit and is displayed as either excellent good or poor. In an average surgery the air is circulated once every 4 minutes. This is 15 cycles per hour (industry recommendation is 6 per hour) Each surgery is slightly different due to its size the minimum air cycles in our surgeries is 11 and in the hygienist surgery it is a whopping 17 times per hour! Its also great for hay fever and allergy sufferers so hopefully you will notice how fresh the air feels at your next visit.
