DENTAL AIR CLEANERS
Patients and dentists alike are at risk of exposure to toxic
levels of mercury every time an amalgam (mercury dental
filling of silver color) is removed from a tooth. A full 50%
of dental fillings are mercury and when drilled out the
vapor is highly concentrated with toxic gas. Mercury is a
potent neurotoxin and is absorbed quickly into fat, liver,
and spleen. If these levels are not removed from the body,
they can pass the blood-brain barrier and deposit in the
brain. Mercury toxicity can cause confusion, tremors,
weakened immune system (making one more susceptible to
infection and allergies), and memory loss. It can lead to
fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The gas released from the filling is immediately absorbed by
the patient and dentist by inhalation. If they are
relatively healthy and their genetic profile allows
detoxification and excretion of heavy metals, they may only
feel ill for a short time. However, individuals with more
sensitive systems or those with longer exposure to mercury
vapor will become ill with weakness and flu-like symptoms in
many cases. Removal of mercury from the body is a long and
PREVENTION IS THE KEY!! Removal of mercury fillings without
evaluation of the patient’s health can be dangerous. Simply
drilling out the fillings without air cleaners, inhalation
of oxygen, and oral chelating supplements can make one ill.
Dr. Robbins takes special precautions during removal of
these fillings to help avoid health complications.
Air in the dental office and around the
tooth being drilled can exhibit high mercury levels,
sometimes exceeding OSHA maximum guidelines by ten times or
more. SMARTAir Solutions was begun by Dr. Robbins to clean
up dental office air with IQAir®
high-efficiency air cleaners specifically designed to remove
mercury vapor. We can supply any dental office with these
Dental Pro air cleaners for general filtration of office air
and for specific use at chairside to capture the mercury
vapor as it is produced at the tooth. IQAir®
is a Swiss based company with independent clean air research
studies to support their claims of high filtration
efficiency (something other companies do not have).
MEDICAL AND INDUSTRIAL AIR CLEANERS
This line of IQAir® units are designed to clean particulates
from the air at a more extreme level. Used in
hospital operating suites, burn units and cancer wards as
examples, and in pharmaceutical clean rooms, these units are
still portable and can be moved as needed. Doctor's
offices and hospital common public areas and waiting rooms
are more protected from disease transmission and respiratory
distress with certain models of IQAir cleaners.
HOME AIR CLEANERS
We also provide a full line of IQAir®
home air cleaners to remove airborne particulates and
bacteria and viruses from the air. These high efficiency air
cleaners are medical grade and reduce breathing difficulties
from allergies, asthma, smoke, and VOCs
(volatile organic compounds). Each unit has 3
including a very fine HEPA filter.
This filter removes reactive particles in the air greater
than 0.3 microns, which is most bacteria, smoke and
viruses!). This microscopic filtration is more than
most other HEPA-type cleaners and will clean air longer
and with less maintenance than ionic air cleaners!! The
HealthPro Plus was the only air cleaner used to
protect hospital workers from the deadly SARS respiratory
epidemic in Hong Kong.
One HealthPro Plus unit will filter the air in an average 13
foot by 13 foot room 5TIMES
at a fan speed of only 4! After initial filtration, we
recommend one unit for every 900 square feet, at a setting
of 3 as a maintenance level.
The unit has a quiet centrifugal fan, and indicators
to tell you when a particular filter needs replacing.
They are especially effective in bedrooms for children and
adults with breathing difficulties. With continuous
filtration, less dust and particles accumulate, which means
less cleaning of room surfaces is needed.
