Illume Dental of McKinney TX Equipment Room

New Equipment

  • Dental Aerosol Extractor
    We have incorporated an external suction to remove excess aerosol created by dental instruments. Aerosols contain water, saliva, blood, debris, and microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. This suction has powerful fan to draw in dental aerosol into his filtration system producing clean, sanitized air back into the room. It has an ULPA filter that filters up to 99.9995% efficiency on particles 0.12 microns and larger (COVID-19 is .125 microns) and activated carbon filters for chemical fumes.
  • Air Purifiers
    We have included medical grade air purifiers throughout the office and in our treatment rooms. These air purifiers use high efficiency HEPA H13 filters tested to remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.1 microns. These purifiers are able to clean the air every 15 mins.
  • Dryshields
    We have incorporate DryShields during cleanings and dental treatments to keep you, other patients, and the team safe. DryShield provides high-suction inside the mouth reducing aerosols and protecting the tongue and throat. It’s a great solution in providing isolation, comfort to patients, and quality dentistry for an ideal patient experience.
