    STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION IN A DENTAL CLINIC ppt STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION IN A DENTAL CLINIC ppt Presentation Transcript

    • STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION -DENTAL INSTRUMENTS -DENTAL UNIT AND ENVIRONMENTAL SURFACES -DENTAL LABORATORY BY VINEETHA.K FINAL YR BDS
    • STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION OF DENTAL INSTRUMENTS
    • DENTAL INSTRUMENTS CLASSIFICATION BASED ON RISK OF TRANSMISSION AND NEED OF STERILIZATION -CRITICAL -SEMI-CRITICAL -NON-CRITICAL
    • CRITICAL INSTRUMENTS • Penetrate MUCOUS MEMBRANES or CONTACT BONE, BLOODSTREAM, or other normally sterile tissues • HEAT STERILIZE between uses or use sterile single- use, DISPOSABLE devices • Examples include SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS, SCALPEL BLADES, PERIODONTAL SCALERS, AND SURGICAL DENTAL BURS
    • SEMI-CRITICAL INSTRUMENTS • Contact MUCOUS MEMBRANES but do NOT PENETRATE SOFT TISSUE • HEAT STERILIZE or HIGH-LEVEL DISINFECT • Examples: DENTAL MOUTH MIRRORS, AMALGAM CONDENSERS, AND DENTAL HANDPIECES
    • NONCRITICAL INSTRUMENTS AND DEVICES • Contact intact SKIN • Clean and disinfect using a LOW TO INTERMEDIATE LEVEL DISINFECTANT • Examples: X-RAY HEADS, FACEBOWS, PULSE OXIMETER, BLOOD PRESSURE CUFF
    • ULTRASONIC CLEANER
    • METHODS OF STERILIZATION • THE STEAM AUTOCLAVE • CHEMICLAVE • DRY HEAT OVENS • OTHERS -EXPOSURE TO ETHYLENE OXIDE GAS -BOILING WATER -IONIZING RADIATION
    • AUTOCLAVE • Sterilization with STEAM UNDER PRESSURE • Time required at 1210 C is 15 mins at 15 lbs of pressure. Advantages • Rapid and effective • Effective for sterilizing cloth surgical packs and towel packs Disadvantages • Items sensitive to heat cannot be sterilized • It tends to corrode carbon steel burs and instruments
    • CHEMICLAVING Sterilization by CHEMICAL VAPOR UNDER PRESSURE • operates at 1310 Cand 20 lbs of pressure. • They have a cycle time of half an hour. Advantages • Carbon steel and other carbon sensitive burs, instruments and pliers are sterilized without rust or corrosion Disadvantages • Items sensitive to elevated temperature will be damaged • Instruments must be very lightly packed. • Towel and heavy clothing cannot be sterilized.
    • DryHeatSterilization Conventional dry heat ovens: • Achieved at temperature above 1600 C. • Have heated chambers that allow air to circulate by gravity flow. • 6-12minsis required for sterilization • Disadvantages • Without careful calibration, more chances sterilization failures • The most accurate way to calibrate a sterilization cycle is by using external temperature gauge (pyrometer) attached to a thermocouple wire.
    • Sterilization Monitoring Types of Indicators • Mechanical –Measure time, temperature, pressure • Chemical –Change in color when physical parameter is reached • Biological (spore tests) –Use biological spores to assess the sterilization process directly
    • DISINFECTION OF DENTAL UNIT AND ENVIRONMENTAL SURFACES
    • DENTAL UNIT •Cleaned by DISPOSIBLE TOWELING •EPA-ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIVE AGENCY •use an EPA registered hospital disinfectant •Cleaning Agents Like PHENOLICS, IODOPHORS, CHLORINE CONTAINING compunds
    • ENVIRONMENTAL SURFACES • CLINICAL CONTACT SURFACES –High potential for DIRECT CONTAMINATION from spray or spatter or by contact with gloved hand. • HOUSEKEEPING SURFACES –Do not come into contact with patients or devices –LIMITED RISK of disease transmission
    • CLINICAL CONTACT SURFACES
    • CLEANING CLINICAL CONTACT SURFACES • Risk of transmitting infections greater than for housekeeping surfaces. • Surface barriers can be used and changed between patients. OR • Clean then disinfect using an EPA-registered low- (HIV/HBV claim) to intermediate-level (tuberculocidal claim) hospital disinfectant.
    • HOUSEKEEPING SURFACES
    • Cleaning Housekeeping Surfaces • Routinely clean with SOAP AND WATER or an EPA- REGISTERED DETERGENT/HOSPITAL DISINFECTANT routinely • Clean MOPS AND CLOTHS and allow to dry thoroughly before re-using. • Prepare FRESH CLEANING AND DISINFECTING SOLUTIONS daily and per manufacturer recommendations.
    • DISINFECTION AND THE DENTAL LABORATORY
    • BASICS OF LABORATORY IC • Need COORDINATION between DENTAL OFFICE AND LAB • Use of proper methods/materials for handling and decontaminating soiled incoming items • All contaminated INCOMING ITEMS should be cleaned and DISINFECTED before being HANDLED BY LAB PERSONNEL, and before being returned to the patient
    • • a sign and monitor system be implemented stating “Only Biologically Clean Items Permitted”
    • INCOMING ITEMS • Rinse under running tap water to remove blood/saliva • Disinfect as appropriate • Rinse thoroughly with tap water to remove residual disinfectant • No single disinfectant is ideal or compatible with all items
    • OUTGOING ITEMS • Clean and disinfect before delivery to patient • After disinfection: rinse and place in plastic bag with diluted mouthwash until insertion • Do not store in disinfectant before insertion • Label the plastic bag: “This case shipment has been disinfected with ______ for _____ minutes”
