Specific considerations and applied aspects in dentistry

The dental chair and delivery system. The chair should be smooth and seamless. The greatest potential for cross contamination is from chair mounted control. Disposable covers should be used as far as possible. The delivery system gas a panel susceptible to infection retention and spread.

Control should be seamlessly integrated or can be remote controlled. The entire unit should be covered with disposable covers where possible and disinfected and wiped between patients on exposed surfaces.

Next comes X- ray unit, an integral part of all practices it is subject to heavy contamination. Single disposable plastic wraps minimize infection spread. Also disinfectants can be used on the surfaces. Film holders, bite block and processing units which are all subject to high contamination should be routinely disinfected and sterilized.

Tubing and hosing including suction and delivery hose can harbor infection. Suctions systems should be routinely washed with water and disinfectants while hand piece and air water syringe tubing should be having retraction devices. Outer surfaces with connector assembly should be washed with detergent and disinfected by immersion.
