Work as a dental technician with long-term exposure to CoCrMo dusts


Dental technicians' pneumoconiosis is associated with exposures to dust from cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloys, especially in technicians that grind metal more than 4 hours per day in the laboratory. Some affected workers complain of cough and dyspnea, and some have diffuse infiltration as radiographic findings. [Rom, p. 527]
