Municipal water quality is highly variable depending on your location. This chemical variability can undermine the effectiveness of microbial treatment products like straws and tablets and potentially reduce the life of your instruments.
Dental unit waterline (DUWL) management is vital in dentistry to control biofilm buildup, minimize the risk of waterborne infections, and maintain the quality of the dental water supply to ensure safe and effective dental treatment for patients.
Protect the health and safety of patients and dental staff.
Isolation and aerosol control are essential in dentistry to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, reduce the risk of cross-contamination, and protect the health and safety of patients and dental staff. These measures can help minimize the production and dispersion of aerosols during dental procedures, reducing the risk of transmission of airborne pathogens.
