Sterilisation Cycle

Sterilisation

Infection control programs, all include the cleaning and sterilization of reusable dental instruments and devices. Many methods of instrument reprocessing are available. Use of a complete system that encompasses and fulfills all elements that are critical maximizes efficiency and minimizes risks.

Most dental offices have a designated area for instrument reprocessing that is separate from the dental treatment room. This is ideal, since cleaning, sterilizing and storing instruments in the same room where the delivery of patient care is provided increases the risk of cross-contamination.

 

Sterilization is the total destruction or inactivation of all micro-organisms including viruses, vegetative and spore forms of bacteria.

Disinfection is killing all vegetative forms  or micro-organisms but not spores.

 

In specialized centers, the sterilization area has 3 rooms

  • A decontamination room (Dirty room)
  • Cooling and Packing room (Clean room)
  • Storage  room.
