Various viruses and bacteria colonize or infect the oral cavity and respiratory tract. These organisms can be transmitted in dental settings most often through direct contact with blood, oral fluids or other patient materials and indirect contact with contaminated objects (e.g., instruments, equipment, or environmental surfaces)
Infection Control in the dental practice focuses on the use of sterilization procedures that will be able to eliminate cross-infection from a dental professional to a patient, from a patient to the dental professional and between two patients.
At Madan Multi Specialty Dental Care Center we follow an international protocol for infection control for the safety of our patients and team members. The use of barriers such as gloves, masks, instrument trays, tray covers, covers of the working surfaces and light handles.
There are a range of instruments used in the dental practice which are disposable and hence control cross-infection inherently. Those which are meant for repeated use are cleaned through a series of steps such as chemical cleaning, biosonic cleaning, heat sterilization, using various equipment and applicable cycles followed by proper handling after sterilization.
Our patients are welcome to take a look at the sterilization area and ask any pertinent questions that they may have to safeguard their health interests.
