Welcome Message

Being the first systemized source of clinical evidence on the topic, the symposium introduces the participant to materials, engineering, dental and biological considerations of aerosol production during routine dental practice, by considering the composition of the aerosol produced and the wide arrays of its effects in various organs, systems and the homeostasis of the organism.

Within the scope of these axes, a wide variety of topics are analyzed, such as spreading of aerosol with the use of high speed or low speed handpieces in wet and dry conditions, nanoparticle characterization in aerosol, airborne bacteria during grinding and ways to manage them, pulmonary/respiratory stress and distribution of the particulates in the respiratory system, xeno-estrogenic action of ground polymers, ways to efficient debond brackets, guidelines for proper, lingual fixed retainer bonding and the future of materials in the field which may offer programmed debonding by introducing temperature variations, irradiation, expandable fillers, and magnets among others. 

The analysis of the evidence on the topic along with the illustrated case material, assist the participant in formulating principles of management of the entire spectrum of challenges encountered in everyday dental practice.

Aspects of aerosol management have become more critical with the onset of the pandemic, however the issue of minimizing the potentially hazardous actions of aerosol during grinding of various materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, tooth structure) has been long considered a source of hazard in dental practice. Aerosol produced in routine dental practice may have microbiological, respiratory and xeno-estrogenic action depending on the source of the material ground and the conditions of grinding. The notable lack of a systematic and thorough basic/applied analysis of the topic is addressed by the content of the symposium, which combines the evidence-based approach with extensive scientific/clinical treatise of the subject by prominent scholars in relevant fields.

The evidence provided in the symposium and the multi-perspective analysis which portray the adjunct role of engineering, microbiology and broader biomedical field, furnishes important information for the management of aerosol during routine dental practice contributing to the effective restriction of its production and array of effects.
