Dental instrument disinfection and sterilisation
Effective and efficient dental Instrument disinfection is essential for the safety of patients and to ensure that productivity does not suffer. Infection control programs all include the cleaning and sterilisation of reusable dental instruments and devices.
Care must be taken by the healthcare professional to ensure that all dental instruments are cleaned prior to sterilisation, and that this is carried out in a safe manner to avoid injury and puncture wounds. Use of an efficient instrument disinfectant like MEDAPROTECT or MEDABUR reduces the risk to dental healthcare professionals when executing infection control programs.
When using ultrasonic cleaners, washers and sterilizers, it is important to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. All our disinfectants are very low foaming and compatible with ultrasonic cleaners.
Assurance of sterility of instruments and devices is obtained through the use of the prescribed dilution and contact time as indicated on the packaging of our products.
