The dental clinic has a wide variety of dental instruments, such as dental mobile phones, dental cleaning instruments, examination instruments, impression trays, toothpaste models, dentures, dental tablets, syringes, injection needles, tooth extraction instruments, filling instruments, periodontal surgical instruments, various dental drills, etc. They should be used after disinfection.
The disinfection of dental clinics is an important means to prevent infection and the spread of infectious diseases. In recent years, with the rapid development of medical science, the disinfection methods of dental clinics are gradually enriched, the disinfection level is rapidly improved, and the disinfection work is on the track of standardization and legalization.
There are also many literature reports on bacterial and viral contamination in dental clinics, mutual infection and diseases between dentists and patients. One of the main causes of cross infection is that dental clinics do not pay attention to the technical operation specifications of disinfection of oral diagnostic and smelling instruments.
1. Control the infection
Dental clinic is a place where pathogenic microorganisms gather. Microorganisms in dental patients and pathogen carriers can be excreted in various forms and pollute the surrounding environment of dental clinic. There are various possibilities of infection in dental clinic.
2. Urge patients to see a doctor
For a long time, the Committee of traditional dental clinics has not paid attention to sterilization and disinfection, leaving loopholes that can not be ignored in this regard. One of the main reasons why many patients are unwilling to go to the dental clinic is to worry about the pollution and disinfection of oral instruments. This not only requires the dental clinic to seriously disinfect the instruments, but also requires the dental clinic to make necessary publicity to the patients. All oral instruments used by the patients should be strictly disinfected and they should learn how to disinfect them.
3. Improve the medical quality
Preventing cross infection in dental clinics is not only a labor health problem for dentists and other employees. Without management from the perspective of sterilization and disinfection, dental clinics may become places where patients infect doctors, patients infect patients, and doctors infect patients. Medical personnel engaged in oral diagnosis and treatment services and disinfection of oral diagnosis and treatment instruments shall master the knowledge of nosocomial infection prevention and control such as disinfection of oral diagnosis and treatment instruments and personal protection, follow the principle of standard prevention and strictly abide by relevant rules and regulations.
