What Do You Need to Know About the Use of Dental Masks

Event

1. Why do I need a dental mask?

If you do not use a dental mask, or use an unprofessional mask, you will not have enough protection against splashes or sprays. Dental powered equipment and air-water injectors produce a visible spray that contains water droplets, saliva, blood, microorganisms, and other debris that may fall on dental health workers, nearby floors, or patients. Wearing a dental mask helps protect the wearer from mucous membrane contact or inhalation of these potentially infectious splashes and sprays.


2. What type of medical mask does the CDC recommend for dental professionals to use?

The CDC recommends that dental professionals wear medical surgical masks to prevent microorganisms with 95% bacterial filtration efficiency and prevent splashes of droplets that may contain blood-borne pathogens or infectious microorganisms.


What is a medical surgical mask?


In the United States, medical surgical masks are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for marketing. According to the FDA, surgical masks may be labeled as surgical, laser, isolation, dental or medical procedure masks.


3. How often should I change my dental mask?

The CDC recommends replacing dental masks between patients because the masks can be contaminated with infectious substances.


If the mask gets wet, it should be replaced as much as possible even during the treatment of the patient.
