Sterilization and disinfection of dental instruments is carried out through several stages:
Immerse each instrument immediately after use in a container of disinfectant solution for a minimum of 30 minutes.
He then goes to the ultrasonic bath where all organic material particles invisible to the naked eye are removed
The instruments are carefully wiped and placed in an autoclave where they undergo sterilization at 134 ° C at a pressure of 2.5 bar.
They are individually packaged in special containers in which they retain sterility and are opened immediately before use.
These methods destroy all bacteria, viruses, fungi, and thus prevent the emergence and spread of any type of infection in the office.
