World-class Sterilization Practices in Marbella

Amongst dentists and their staff you hear scary stories of some dental clinics that take short-cuts with their sterilization and disinfection practices, like not changing dental drills between patients, or not wiping down with anti-septics all touched surfaces after a patient leaves. At R&H DENTAL we are dedicated to taking 'universal precautions', which means, assume every patient has every infectious disease possible, and always sterilize every piece of dental equipment. Also, you'll notice when you visit us that we even have disposable, surgical-grade, physical barriers on commonly touched surfaces, like dental light handles, door handles etc. to ensure the highest hygiene practices possible.

World-class dental sterilization refers to the use of high-quality sterilization techniques and protocols to ensure that dental instruments and equipment are free of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that could potentially cause infection. Dental sterilization is an important aspect of patient safety and is necessary to prevent the transmission of infections from one patient to another.

There are several methods that can be used to sterilize dental instruments and equipment, including autoclaving, chemical sterilization, and dry heat sterilization. Autoclaving is the most common method of sterilization in the dental industry and involves the use of high-pressure steam to kill microorganisms. Chemical sterilization involves the use of chemicals, such as hydrogen peroxide or peracetic acid, to kill microorganisms. Dry heat sterilization involves the use of high temperatures to kill microorganisms.

To achieve world-class dental sterilization, it is important for dental practices to adhere to strict sterilization protocols and to use high-quality sterilization equipment that is properly maintained and calibrated. Dental practices should also have a documented sterilization process and should regularly test their sterilization equipment to ensure that it is functioning properly. By following these best practices, dental practices can help ensure the safety of their patients and maintain a high level of infection control.
