Many disinfection solutions for dental unit water systems often involve the use of questionable chemicals.
In Denmark and other countries, chemicals containing silver nanoparticles are widely used. These substances are under strict surveillance throughout the EU.
In addition to their questionable effect, the patient and not least the dentist will inhale silver nanoparticles. The consequences for the patient are insignificant due to the short period of exposure.
However, dentists and dental assistants inhale this substance for years without any certainty that they and their patients are fully protected from Legionella and other dangerous bacteria.
