With COVID-19 containment methods escalating, minimising aerosols and airborne particles in dental practices is a critical topic and both ART and SM-ART (Silver Modified* ART) techniques are being proposed and recommended to triage patients and emergency cases until standard dental treatment can continue. Our SDF/KI* and GIC’s can greatly assist with this protocol and we are exploring providing webinars on the topic that may assist you treat patients with minimally invasive techniques to help control and prevent the spread of the virus whilst still offering emergency patients a standard of care and treatment that will keep them functioning for a provisional period until such time that you can recommence standard dental restorative procedures.
