to ensure safety and hygiene in the dental office
In dental offices, particular attention must be given to the proper cleaning and disinfection of special areas. This does not only apply to amalgam separators and suction systems, but also the spittoon and the disinfection of impressions and prosthetic workpieces.
At least once each working day, the contaminated inner surfaces of the suction system (suction hoses) must be disinfected. (Source: RKI guidelines). Preparations with defoaming properties are particularly suitable for this purpose. These ensure the proper function of the amalgam and separator as well as the disinfection of the suction hoses in order to prevent backflow.
To clean the spittoon, enzyme-based cleaners are particularly suitable which thoroughly dissolve protein and remove limescale and colour sedimentation.
Impressions and prosthetic workpieces may only be handed over to a third party after prior disinfection. Immersion disinfection as well as automated spray disinfection are appropriate for this purpose. When disinfecting impressions, make sure that the product used is suitable for the particular material. Unsuitable disinfectants or improper use (action times!) may affect the dimensional stability.
