Sterilization is a very essential process during a dental procedure. It reduces the potential risk of transmission of diseases which may occur due to living micro-organism deadliest bacteria & viruses. We are concerned about protecting our patients from infectious diseases. We meet or exceed all guidelines set forth by the ADA, OSHA, and the Center for Disease Control. We employ hospital cleanliness standards and sterilization techniques, so you know always that you are getting the best treatment money can buy at a fraction of the cost you would pay back home.
At the beginning of the day the floors are thoroughly scrubbed with the disinfectants which leaves the place clean and smelling fresh. All carpeted/non carpeted areas are meticulously cleaned with a high power vacuum cleaner to get all the dust mites out and prevent air borne infections if any. The chairs and all moving/rotating parts are sprayed with antiseptic solution and wiped clean with a soft cloth. After every patient the same procedure is followed for the chairs to prevent cross infection.
All of our dental instruments are sterilized by autoclave with a high temperature up to 135 degree Celsius using a vaporizing effect created from high pressure pushing heat thoroughly all over and through every part of the instrument, even in very tiny spaces. At this temperature all known disease causing bacteria are known to be killed. This is the standard autoclaving procedure followed in Operation Theatres worldwide.
Additinally, we also use the Attest Biological Monitoring System by 3M ESPE to verify the effectiveness of our sterilization efforts. The 3M Attest sterilization is a proven and reliable system with a 20 year product history using biological indicator system for monitoring steam sterilization. This is used to ensure that our sterilization controls and standards are well assured and above those of required standards.
We use a fresh, new pair of gloves for every patient that is disposed off immediately after the treatment is completed. In addition we use disposable masks, suction tips and plastic glasses. All local anesthetic is given from sealed syringes that are opened in front of you and disposed off immediately after treatment.
