WHEN SELECTING RESPIRATOR STYLES & SIZES
As respirator styles increase in cost, they offer more comfort, ease of use and overall features. Most men will wear large, as the larger the respirator one can fit into properly, the more comfort. Most women wear medium. Small sizes usually work for people with a very short distance from the bridge of the nose to the bottom of the chin.
FILTER CHANGE-OUT SCHEDULE
3M states that mercury vapor filters should be changed out 30 days after opening the package or sooner, according to your Hazard Assessment.

THE NECESSITY OF UTILIZING FACE SHIELDS & SAFETY GLASSES
Studies have shown that even with engineering controls such as water and high volume suction, that the removal of mercury dental fillings generates mercury contaminated particulate matter. Some of these particles will bypass suction controls and be deposited on the face and neck of the dentist and assistant, where it will continue to off gas or be absorbed into the skin, exposing dental professionals after their respirators have been removed. Thus the necessity of utilizing face shields to protect the face and neck of the dental professional during amalgam removal.
Face shields are a vital component to preventing mercury particulate from landing on the face and neck of dental professionals. Likewise, safety glasses will protect your eyes. Face shields with hanging drapes will provide added protection from mercury particulate matter coming up from below the face shield. Face shields will be contaminated after each mercury filling removal and thus are one time use items, so please order a monthly amount equal to the number of amalgam removal sessions you perform each month. Any items present during an amalgam removal that will be reused should undergo thorough cleaning to remove mercury.
