DOVE Dental Products releases single-use aerosol management device

June 18, 2020

The new AERO HVE/SE combo is said to reduce airborne aerosol movement by up to 95 percent.

DOVE®ï¸ Dental Products has 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 instrument use in a dental setting, the company announced in a press release.

AERO addresses three critical areas of infection control concern-evacuation, backflow, and aerosol management-by combining the power of high-volume ejector (HVE) suction with the safety of a one-way backflow protection, using a secured saliva ejector (SE) for easier access and patient relief. The AERO also features a patented 360-degree external aerosol chamber to effectively manage airborne particles of up to 95 percent when combined with internal fluid evacuation.

"We are extremely excited to introduce the new DOVE® AERO HVE Backow Prevention Valve," said Jim Langeloh, vice president of sales, DOVE Dental. "It's the first valve of its kind to offer external aerosol collection, backflow protection, and HVE power while providing patients with the comfort of using a saliva ejector."

DOVE AERO is said to be a simple, cost-effective solution of oral health professionals to manage the spread of COVID-19 using instruments with which they are already familiar.
