Potential transmission of disease to personnel during dental procedures has become a source of increased concern to the dental professionals. Aerosols generated during ultrasonic scaling can transport microorganisms from the patients' mouth and respiratory tract to contaminate the skin and mucous membranes of the mouth, respiratory passages and eyes of dental personnel. Health of the dental team may be compromised by such airborne hazards. An effort has been made to highlight the importance of aerosol contamination during ultrasonic scaling.
