Water quality can affect cleaning, disinfection and the sterilization processes. BIDH checks water quality based on AAMI guidelines. Initial rinsing uses tap water, but during the final rinsing of cleaned medical devices, treated water is used.
Ions, microorganisms, organics within water quality are checked.
Dental instruments undergo several layers of cleaning. Dental instruments are initially soak in rapid multi-enzyme detergent that pre-disinfects human secretions. Thereafter, the instruments are placed in ultrasonic cleaners to remoe tiny or invisible dirt. This is followd by autoclaving in vaccum suction units.
At every stage, chemical indicators double confirm that all instruments are sterile and our sterilization machines are performing effectively. Every machine cycle at BIDH is tracked and recorded.
All autoclaved dental instruments have are checked with internal and external labels. Expiry dates mark each individual packs. We use a Class 5 level check, the highest level of sterilization examination.
Sterilized clean instruments are consistently kept under controlled cool temperatures and humidity to prevent bacteria growth. Backup generators are in place should a power supply disturbance occur.
Autoclave pressure-steam machines or autoclaves does not guarantee total sterilization. Our dental hospital has a double-level verifcition system using biological checks on top of chemical checks for critical instruments and equipment.
Single-use disposable towels that contains high level disfectants are used with our dental units during cleaning.Our pre-selected high level disfectant used for lceaning at our dental hospital is clinically certifed to be effective against bacteria.
