Sterile instruments and clean equipment are a matter of course in a professional dental practice. Nevertheless, we would like to take a closer look at sterilization. First of all, we distinguish between disinfection and sterilization.
Not all instruments in a dental office need to be sterilized. Medical devices that only come into contact with skin should be carefully disinfected after treatment.
In professional practice, this disinfection is done by machine in the thermal disinfector. The disinfection, that is, the killing of all pathogenic germs, is alkaline. Of course, the thermodisinfector is validated in our practice and is serviced annually.
