Spraying, Wrapping, and Wiping What really matters in disinfection!
If you are not using a Pre-Rinse prior to your procedures then all the spraying, wrapping, and wiping is a waste. You may have disinfected the surfaces, however we know that aerosols come out of the mouth during dental procedures, these can linger in the air and settle on sufaces in your operatory from one patient to the next. What have you done to try to remove the microbes from the air?
If you treat patients and wear a face shield, you know why Pre-rinsing is important. On your shield, you will see evidence of the aerosol of a high speed hand piece, but it is what you don’t see that will harm you. In the air and on your skin and clothes are dangerous microbes (Bacteria, Viruses and Fungi) that came from your patient’s mouth. These microbes can cause infections, diseases and even death. Our goal should to be to eliminate or at least minimize the microbes before you treat the patient. As we know, it is not just bacteria that are harmful but also viruses, fungi, and Biofilm. We must choose a product that has the ability to kill all these types microbes. OraCare™ is the BEST product for Pre-Rinsing because OraCare’s active ingredient, Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, and breaks up biofilm. They also have university studies to back up your their claims.
Benefits of a Post Rinse
After treatment like implants, extractions, scaling and root planing, have the patient rinse with Activated Chlorine Dioxide (OraCare’s Active ingredient). After procedures like these dental professionals should attempt to control the amount of bacteria, viruses, fungi, biofilm, and volatile sulfur compounds as they can effect and slow down healing. Irrigating the areas both pre and post procedurally can help remove many of these pathogens.
