Infection Control

INFECTION CONTROL

In today’s day and age, infection control in a dental clinic is of primary concern to all visiting it. We at “Smyle Kraft” take maximum care to make it a zero contamination zone and make it safe for our patients.

A Thorough regimen is followed to achieve total infection control in our clinic.

A thorough medical history of the patient is taken during his first dental visit, which is updated and reviewed at subsequent visits. Not all patients with infectious diseases can be identified by medical history, physical examination or readily available laboratory tests. This limitation has introduced the concept of Universal precautions.

This term refers to a method of infection control in which all human blood and certain human body fluids (saliva in dentistry) are treated as if known to be infectious for HIV, HBV, and other blood borne pathogens. Universal precautions mean that the same infection control procedures are used for all patients.

Barrier Techniques

We use the most modern autoclave for optimum sterilization of all non- disposable instruments. It sterilizes instruments at high temperature and high pressure.

Gloves are worn when skin contact with body fluids, mucous membranes or contaminated items and surfaces is anticipated. Between patients, the gloves are removed and hands washed and re-gloved. Latex or vinyl gloves are used for patient examinations and procedures.

Heavy rubber – (utility) gloves are used while cleaning instruments and environmental surfaces.

Hand washing – Hands are washed at the start of the day, before gloving, after removal of gloves and after touching any contaminated surface. Hand washing with water and plain soap is adequate for patient examination and non surgical procedures. For surgical procedures, an anti-microbial hand scrub is used.

Face masks – protect the oral and nasal mucosa from body fluid spatters. They are changed for every patient.

Protective eye wear is indicated to shield the eyes from spatters wherever deemed necessary.

Protective clothing. Disposable Aprons are worn in the dental clinic. They are changed when visibly soiled or penetrated by fluids and are not worn outside the work area.

Dental bur- They are sterilized by the use of a Salt/Glass bead sterilizer.

Instruments and equipment’s intended for sterilization or disinfection procedures are carefully prepared. Patient debris and body fluids are removed from the instruments and surfaces.

Hand piece asepsis
A dental hand piece is the backbone of any dental practice as it is the instrument which is practically used on each patient and since it is a very expensive piece of equipment it cannot be disposed off. We always sterilize the hand piece and the dental bur(the detachable tip of the handpiece).
