GENERAL DENTISTRY

IINFECTION CONTROL

All Day All Night Dental always provides a safe and clean environment. 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. Using a three-step sterilization process on all instruments and handpieces, with the last step being steam sterilization, each patient we treat is completely protected.


Providing a good clean, disinfected environment for each patient is critical. We use plastic coverings in all of our treatment rooms and all water used for patient treatment passes through an ultra-violet sterilization process. We also use protective equipment such as latex gloves, masks, eyewear, and lab coats. And when possible, we use disposable items.

All Day All Night Dental welcomes your questions and the opportunity to demonstrate how we handle sterilization techniques and patient protection. We want you to feel comfortable about your treatment in our office.

THE MIELE

The Miele G 7881 Dental Washer Disinfector is designed for efficient cleaning and thermal disinfection of dental instruments. The unit cleans and disinfects instruments with a high-temperature cycle rather than a chemical bath. The system allows a dental office to bypass many manual steps that were once required to clean instruments. The G 7881 Dental Washer Disinfector does 4 steps in 1: Pre-soak, Rinse, Clean and Dry!


Using the G 7881 Dental Washer Disinfector, you simply load the machine, select a cycle and let the machine do the rest. The fully automated system eliminates the need for pre-soaking, hand scrubbing, rinsing and drying, making instruments ready for sterilization more quickly and safely. Its impressively quiet performance helps the dental office operate without distraction.


With more and more dental offices renovating old spaces and building new ones, there is a growing trend to find high tech equipment to gain efficiency. The Miele G 7881 Dental Washer Disinfector is the right choice for progressive dental practices that are interested in streamlining cleaning and modernizing sterilization areas.


The Miele G 7881 Dental Washer Disinfector is the result of extensive R&D in close cooperation with the dental industry. It has been developed specifically for the cleaning of dental instruments and accessories, and is suitable for reducing the risk of infection by providing high-level disinfection.

Clean and disinfected instruments are the result of four key elements. The mechanical action of the water provides a natural scrubbing effect, detergents chemically attack the soil, the proper water temperature aids the chemical and mechanical action, and sufficient time allows these elements to work to full effect.

High Level Disinfection

During the processing and packaging of soiled dental instruments, personnel are required by CDC guidelines to wear heavy gloves while handling the instruments. Not only does this slow the process of sterilization and disinfection, but a puncture wound exposes the worker to risk of infection from the patient. High-level disinfection makes instruments clean enough to be handled with bare hands. Not only is this faster and easier, it also eliminates the dangerous step of scrubbing the instruments by hand.


The G 7881 Dental Washer Disinfector offers a program for thermal disinfection with simultaneous cleaning, rinsing, and optional drying of instruments and accessories. The disinfection takes place at 93C/200F with a holding time of 10 minutes, resulting in tuberculocidal disinfection including the inactivation of HIV, MTV and HBV without the use of chemical disinfectants. When retrieving the instruments/cassettes from the disinfector, they are safe for handling.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You may not be aware that sterilization and other infection control precautions take place, because many of these procedures occur out of your view. We want to give you some tips on how to talk with your dentist, and on some of the things you can look for in your dentist's office to allay your anxiety about patient safety. Spending a few minutes talking about infection control procedures will not only boost your confidence, it also will help you become a smart dental consumer and form a successful relationship with your dentist. Here's what you should ask.

I've heard about universal precautions. Can you tell me what they are?

Universal precautions are safety procedures established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association. They are used for each and every patient to prevent the transmission of the AIDS virus and other infectious diseases. These precautions require all dental staff involved in patient care to use appropriate protective garb such as gloves, and sometimes masks and eyewear. After each patient visit, the gloves are discarded, hands are washed and a new pair of gloves is used for the next patient.

 

Do you sterilize the instruments including the handpiece (drill) after each patient?

According to a recent study in the journal of the American Dental Association, virtually all dentists sterilize their handpiece (drill) between patients. Dental offices follow specific heat sterilization procedures which are outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association. Disposable items, such as needles and saliva ejectors, cannot be sterilized and are discarded in special containers.

How do you sterilize the instruments? Can you show me how it's done?

Dental instruments are cleaned and sterilized at very high temperatures after each time they are used on a patient. Recommended sterilization methods include: an autoclave (steam under pressure), a dry heat oven, or chemical vapor (commonly called a chemiclave). The sterilization equipment usually is not in the treatment room, but if you'd like to see how and where it's done, ask the dental staff to show you.

 

How do you clean and disinfect the examining room, and how often is this done?

Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops have been cleaned and decontaminated. Some offices may cover this equipment with protective covers, which are replaced after each patient. Sharp items and anything contaminated with blood or saliva are disposed of in special containers.

 

Are there other safety guidelines that dentists must follow?

Yes. OSHA, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has specific regulations that protect employees from injury and illness in the work place. These "safe workplace" regulations pertain to occupational settings, including dental offices with one or more employees. While the primary purpose of the regulations is to safeguard employees, these procedures also protect the patient. For example, gloves provide protection for both you and the dental team.

Don't let uncertainty about safety keep you away from the dentist's office, or cause anxiety while you're there, when a few minutes of conversation with your dentist can set your mind at ease.

Your dental health is too important to neglect. Remember to learn the facts about your dentist's infection control procedures by starting with a little heart-to-heart.

If you don't have a dentist, you can obtain ADA referrals by contacting your local dental society. The local dental society is usually listed in the telephone directory under "dentist" or "association."
