Innovative Dental Radiation Protection Products

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.

Dental Lead-Free Aprons & Dental X-Ray Aprons

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.

Our Innovative Anti-Bacterial Dental Apron Technologies

We’ve developed innovative apron technologies that keep your aprons sanitized, Covid-19 compliant, and safe for your patients and staff. These features include:

  • UltraFlex™. Our proprietary and patented fabric which is stain-resistant, impervious to fluids, and can be easily sanitized between each use.
  • MagnaGuard™. Our patented, magnetic closure system that eliminates velcro and makes your aprons cleaner, easier to wear, and longer-lasting.

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.

Dental Apron Core Material Options

Our catalog of dental aprons features two core materials, including:

  1. Pb-free™. Our Tungsten-based, proprietary lead-free, lightweight, alloy blend, protective core material.
  2. Pb Standard™. A lightweight, lead-based, protective core material.

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.
