Value preservation and hygiene management of dental instruments
The direct contact of dental instruments with the patients has a contaminating effect and wear is caused by e.g. high rotational speed. Both must be counteracted with appropriate hygiene and care measures. The webinar addresses precisely these points.
An excellent, continuous hygiene is an essential requirement – both by law and by patients. It protects not only the dentist but also the practice team and the patients. In contrast it is often discussed that hygiene measures are partly perceived as exaggerated and that they might decrease the durability of dental instruments and equipment.
However, the opposite is the case, because the right hygiene and care ensures the longevity and value retention of your treatment units.
Gerhard Schäle, specialist for instruments at KaVo, deals with this important topic in his course on June 17th , 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Find out which steps you have to take to be “on the safe side” when it comes to hygiene and understand, among other things, the reasons that lead to a loss of functionality and what you can do against it.
Some key topics:
• Sources of infections and the risk of contamination
• What happens, if care and maintenance doesn’t take place?
• Guidelines for compliant reprocessing
• Manual and mechanical instrument maintenance
