Efficacy of three face masks in preventing inhalation of airborne contaminants in dental practice

, : Efficacy of three face masks in preventing inhalation of airborne contaminants in dental practice. Journal of the American Dental Association 136(7): 877-882

Background. Up-to-date studies are needed on the protection provided by face masks used by dentists. We assessed the relative filtering efficacy of two currently used surgical face masks (one a molded mask, the other a tie-on mask) and a certified personal particulate respirator, all made by a single manufacturer.Methods.
