Aerosols in the dental clinic. Part 2: Precautions for reducing infection - Aerosols are generated secondary to different treatment procedures and situations in the dental clinic. Aerosols in the dental clinic may be infectious and transfer disease between clinic staff and patients. The authors present and discuss different measures to reduce infection caused by exposure to microbial aerosols. It is unrealistic to expect that close range aerosols […]
Aerosols in the dental clinic. Part 1: Risks of infectious disease transmission - Aerosol-generating procedures associated with oral care may involve risks for disease transmission between patients and dental staff. Article part I describes characteristics of aerosols and possible influence on health. This paper focuses on microbial aerosols and on situations and procedures that produce microbial aerosols in the dental clinic. Several forms of microbial aerosols are created […]
Effect of silica nano-spheres on adhesion of oral bacteria and human fibroblasts - This study investigated the effect of surface nano-patterning on adhesion of an oral early commensal colonizer, Streptococcus mitis and the opportunistic pathogen Staphylococcus aureus and human fibroblasts (HDFa) in a laminar flow cell.
