The new AERO HVE/SE combo is designed to reduce airborne aerosol movement in orthodontic and dental practices, by up to 95%.

DOVE Dental Products announced the release of the new DOVE AERO, a single-use hybrid device designed to significantly reduce the risk of airborne aerosol movement caused by instruments used in a dental setting.

The threat from COVID-19 has prompted oral health professionals to rethink their infectious disease protocol to mitigate the spread of contagions in three areas: evacuation, backflow, and aerosol management. According to the Guidance for Dental Settings published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “…if aerosol-generating procedures are necessary for dental care, use four-handed dentistry, high evacuation suction and dental dams to minimize droplet spatter and aerosols.”

DOVE AERO reportedly combines the power of high-volume ejector (HVE) suction with the safety of a one-way backflow protection, using a secured saliva ejector (SE) for patient comfort and easier access. The AERO features a patented 360° external aerosol chamber to effectively manage airborne particles of up to 95% when combined with internal fluid evacuation.
