Digital imaging technology is revolutionizing the dental industry, but this superior technology does come at a cost, as patients and staff are being exposed to increasing levels of ionizing radiation.
While individual radiation doses are low, it’s important to remember the cumulative effects of radiation exposure. Without proper protection, ionizing radiation can amass over time, eventually reaching cancer-causing levels.
At Barrier Technologies, we make it easy for dental specialists and clinics to mitigate this risk of radiation by manufacturing the best dental x-ray protection products in the industry. Our protective aprons, thyroid collars, and other dental products pair maximum protection with optimal comfort.
A problem for the dental industry is that nylon fabric and velcro closures can’t be properly cleaned and disinfected, so traditional dental lead apron are exceptionally dirty.
This introduces a lot of risk, especially since the average dental apron can be handled by up to 100 people on a busy day.
With each new use the apron gathers more contaminants, and since its being passed from person to person to person — well, you can imagine the huge volume of bacteria being transmitted between patients.
Here at Barrier Technologies, our dental aprons solve this hygiene problem.
We’ve developed innovative apron technologies that keep your aprons sanitized, Covid-19 compliant, and safe for your patients and staff. These features include:
By ordering dentist aprons equipped with MagnaGuard™ and UltraFlex™, you’re protecting your staff and patients with the safest and most hygienic aprons in the industry.
If you are looking for lead-free dental aprons, you’ll be excited to hear that our innovative lead-lite core material offers the same level of protection as a lead apron, but is significantly lighter. This makes our aprons easy to wear for long periods of time.
We offer three dental thyroid shield options, allowing you to select the best collar for your practice. Our most popular dental collar option is the Boomerang, which many dental practices use to protect both patients and staff.
We recommend ordering dental X-ray collars equipped with MagnaGuard™ and UltraFlex™ for maximum comfort and antibacterial protection.
Aprons can also be embroidered with your company’s logo and branding.
We are constantly working hard to ensure our X-ray protection for dental patients and staff is the best in America. This is why we’ve invested in developing new technologies like UltraFlex™.
