I have read an article about disinfectants in implant dentistry now. My brother works in an implant manufacturing laboratory. So, kindly help me know the occupational hazards related to his laboratory work. Are the radiations in his workplace harmful? And also, as his mom had cancer recently, Is he prone to that?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Regarding occupational hazards, I would say that implant disinfection involves exposure to specific chemical and laser-assisted methods. As dentistry itself is associated with occupational hazards, all the professionals related to it have some occupational hazards. All of us have oncogenes. But they get activated only by genetic recession, by specific radiation, or through chemical exposures. He has nothing to worry about if he maintains safety measures like a face shield, mouth mask, lifestyle management, and proper oral hygiene. An N95 mask is needed during this pandemic.
I do not think that he is associated with any risk of cancer from his occupation.
