At Southeastern Dental Care, the overall wellness of our patients is one of our top priorities. That is why we have invested in many advanced technologies to make sure that the care we provide is as safe, efficient, and relaxing as possible. One of those technologies is our Surgically Clean Air purifiers. These remarkable devices ensure that only the cleanest, safest air enters your lungs when you are in our dental office.
When someone mentions air pollution, the first thing that comes into your mind might be smog-filled cities. However, what many people do not realize is that indoor air is often even more polluted than outdoor air. Allergens, dead skin cells, bacteria, viruses, dust, smoke, odors, and more tend to linger in indoor spaces, especially where there is not a lot of air movement. Coughing, sneezing, headaches, and even systemic illness can all result from contaminated inside air.
Without a purification system, the air inside dental offices may be particularly hazardous. That is because the nature of dental procedures releases saliva particles and other bio-aerosols into the surroundings. This can be especially dangerous if a patient visits the dentist while they are ill. Additionally, dust from high-traffic carpet, as well as the use of certain chemicals, can negatively affect indoor air quality.
While all of this talk about poor indoor air quality might seem a little scary, there is no reason for you to worry when you visit Southeastern Dental Care. Not only do we maintain a spotlessly clean dental office, but we are also a dentist with an air purification system that removes particulates in the air and leaves it as fresh and healthful as possible.
The majority of residential and even commercial air purification systems have just one filter for air to go through. While these systems do get rid of many pollutants, they are not as effective as the Surgically Clean Air system. These unique purifiers feature an advanced, six stage filtration system that includes a HEPA-RX, UV light, and much more. This complex process helps to rid the air of:
With such impressive air-cleaning power, you might think that the Surgically Clean Air system is noisy. In truth, though, it is only about as loud as a normal kitchen dishwasher. As an added bonus, the system even has a negative ion generator to make the air feel more energizing and pure.
