Dental unit is a medical equipment for dental treatment, which is suitable for the examination, diagnosis and treatment of various dental diseases. The endoscope carried by the treatment table is an advanced oral photography system, which can clearly display the normal structure and abnormal lesions of various parts of the oral cavity (including teeth). It is convenient for doctors to accurately diagnose and patients to understand the severity of the disease, making it easier for doctors to communicate with patients. The treatment table is also equipped with light curing machine and dental cleaning machine, making doctors' treatment more convenient, fast and handy.
Sterilization of dental unit, the following elements must be considered.
1. Process water: recent studies have shown that dental cooling systems can be colonized by different pathogens. Long standing water or insufficient cleaning of centralized decalcification system is conducive to the development of algae or microorganisms (such as fungus), and then form biofilm. There are several water disinfection techniques. For example, use ultraviolet power to eliminate bacteria and prevent biofilm growth, or use automatic cleaning and disinfection systems and treat water with specially designed products and distribute it in low doses for a long time.
2. Dental chair: all patients sit on the chair, so it may be splashed by blood, saliva and other body fluids in daily ajax dental care. If the chair is not properly sterilized, patients and nursing staff may be exposed to various kinds of microorganisms, such as herpes virus, HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C, staphylococci, Streptococcus, etc. These microorganisms can be spread through direct contact with blood or body fluids, and even in some cases they can be spread through indirect contact with contaminated objects. Dental chairs may also be exposed to parasites such as lice or bedbugs. Therefore, it is very important to disinfect with appropriate products after each use.
