Dental surgery made safer in times of Covid

Dental surgery made safer in times of Covid

WEDNESDAY, April 22, 2020

Siam Cement Group (SCG) has invented protective gear to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission during dental surgery.

The DENT Guard is a shield made of clear plastic stretched between tubing that fits over the patient’s head. Openings in the plastic sheets enable the dentist to carry out surgery safely, while both the dentist and patient are protected from droplets that may carry disease. The DENT Guard has been designed so that it doesn’t reflect light in the operation room.
With tubing made of metal, the structure is also durable, lightweight and easy to clean, said SCG.
