  8. 8. The future of our business Modern dentists are skilled health care specialists and business- oriented leaders. At Nitram Dental, we are in the vanguard of helping dental clinics meet both current and future requirements.
  9. 9. NITRAM DENTAL16 17NITRAM DENTAL Modern dentistry New times, new demands In modern dental clinics, the staff’s atten- tion should not be on routine manual work. The DAC Universal makes the process of cleaning, lubricating and sterilizing hand- pieces and turbines fully automatic. The result is both time and money saved and levels of hygiene that belong among the medical elite. Dentistry is not what it used to be, as both dentists and technology are continuously developing. Modern dentists have to master both the professional and the business sides of running a dental clinic. While they are health care specialists, perform surgery, keep updat- ed on the latest knowledge in their field, they are also skilled, business-oriented leaders. We live up to the modern profile At Nitram Dental, we want to help all dentists to create clinics that live up to both the mod- ern profile and conform to the authorities’ hy- giene norms and standards. We want to be at the forefront in the fight against cross-con- tamination, helping dentists provide their pa- tients with the best possible care and safety. Focus on patients We also want to help dentists to run their busi- ness in the most efficient way. In modern clinics, all cleaning, lubrication and sterilizing processes occur completely automatically, so that both dentists and dental assistants can use their re- sources to provide the patients with the best service and treatment. Designed to benefit We have developed DAC Universal to match the hygiene and business requirements that modern dentists encounter. When cleaning, lubricating and sterilizing are carried out in one single automated process, it frees more hands for the patients. At the same time, DAC Universal ensures that the clinic’s instruments last longer and the oil expenses are reduced by up to 80 per cent – all to the benefit of the modern dentist’s work and business.
  10. 10. NITRAM DENTAL18 19NITRAM DENTAL Showing the way forward Jesper Hatt from Skagen Dental Clinic is the first Danish dentist who has taken a complete training module at the renowned Pankey Institute in Florida. He carries on the American in-service training at his clinic in Denmark, where he has up to 15 Danish and international dentists on a course at a time. Patient safety, bottom line and brand- ing are key words in the modern Skagen Dental Clinic. And the DAC Universal is an importantcontributortothehigherhygiene requirements and increased earnings. The dentists, Helle and Jesper Hatt, know that it pays to give their patients the best possible experience in the couple’s ultra- modern Skagen Dental Clinic, located on the northernmost point of Denmark. “Good hygiene should be mandatory. When all the processes in the clinic are in order, the patients experience greater safety. It gives the business a better reputation and is impor- tant for the positive branding of the dental profession”, says Jesper Hatt. Highest possible standard While Jesper Hatt has been teaching at the dental school, Helle has specialized in implant surgery through an international diploma course. “Surgical operations place an additional demand on hygiene and we transfer these high standards to as many of our other treatment types as possible, says Helle Hatt.” “We want an exceptional clinic that provides first-class dental work. We also expect that the hygiene requirements and documentation in the industry will be tightened in the future, which is perfectly reasonable”, she adds. A well-run business Since 2008, the DAC Universal has been an important tool in this modern clinic. It is not only important for hygiene, but also for the clinic’s resources and bottom line. “The DAC Universal conveniently cleans, lubri- cates and sterilizes the instruments between patients. The entire process is done quickly, so we need fewer handpieces and turbines.At the same time, we avoid mess with oil and do not have to waste time by cleaning one instrument at a time”, says Jesper Hatt and continues: “We have invested a great deal of money in creating our dream clinic, so to survive we must have a well-run business.” Meeta modern dentist Hygiene in a first-class CLINIC
  11. 11. Risk assessment People travel–and so do infectious diseases and other devastating microbiological capabilities. Proper cleaning is the most efficient way to prevent cross-contamination in the dental clinic.
  12. 12. NITRAM DENTAL22 23NITRAM DENTAL Hepatitis B VIRUS Hepatitis B virus is one of the world’s most common and serious infection diseases. It is estimated that more than one third of the world’s population has been infected with the virus. Hepatitis B virus infections cause more than 1 million deaths every year. Source: WHO Handpieces and turbines are dentistry’s most difficult instruments to clean be- cause these hollow instruments feature a sophisticated inner mechanical construc- tion, internal cavities as well as long and narrow channels (tubes) for air and water. Handpieces and turbines are also delicate surgical instruments–proper care must be taken not only due to the risks for of cross- contamination but also to maintain optimal function and longevity. Proper decontamination is needed It is extremely important to decontaminate your instruments properly, not only by steril- ization, but also by first washing them thor- oughly, both externally and internally. If the rotating instruments are not properly cleaned before sterilization, the biological remnants on all inner surfaces will become charred – with a devastating effect on functionality, and en- capsulating infectious material. Did you miss a spot? As described by Dr. D.L. Lewis and Dr. R.K. Boe in 1992: if internal lumens and crevices are not ultra-clean, the sterilization process will only result in surface-sterilized aggregates. When these aggregates are broken apart by the moving parts of rotating dental instru- ments, their viable interiors could be liberated (ref: Lewis D.L:, Boe R.K. J Clin Microbiol 1992(30) Febr 2: 401-406). In the same article,Lewis and Boe compare the dosage of biological material released from dental turbines and handpieces while doing a minor dental restoration with the equal risk of unprotected oral intercourse. Similarly, they compare larger dental preparations involving minor marginal gingival injuries with multiple 20-gauge-needle percutaneous penetrations involving previously used needles. The cutting rotation forces and high-pressure flow of wa- ter from handpieces and turbines will have the same effect. Bioburden Why cleaning beats sterilization
  13. 13. NITRAM DENTAL 2524 NITRAM DENTAL HIV VIRUS So far about 60 million people are infected with HIV virus. 33.4 million people carry the virus in themselves. Around 25 million people have died of aids. Source: WHO croorganisms that form part of the normal flora can cause problems. When found in den- tal instruments, for instance, they can carry the genetic material of antibiotic resistance. Sterile doesn’t mean clean Bacteria do not cause infection by just being there. They produce enzymes (toxins) that will break down tissue. A sterile instrument might be free from living microorganisms. But if it is improperly cleaned, it can be filled with poison- ous toxins that can cause strong inflammatory reactions in patients or dental staff. When bacteria disintegrate after having been killed, all toxins in their interior will be released into their surroundings. Sterilization of a large bacterial burden can therefore mean an in- creased risk. This is the main reason why in- struments have to be thoroughly cleaned be- fore they are sterilized. Don’t hand-wash your instruments Even the most thorough hand-washing of instruments – performed by the most dili- gent dental assistant – can be insufficient and damaging to your health. This is because blood, saliva and other biological material can hide inside the rotating instruments and cre- ate biofilm, which makes the bacteria almost impossible to destroy. This means the possibility of cross-contami- nation remains intact and the patients’ health is at risk. Hand-washing in stagnant water will actually result in higher microbial burden on instruments after the washing procedure than before. Dr. Zimmerman on bioburden According to associate professor Dr. Mikael Zimmerman from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, the fight against biobur- den – and especially bacterial biofilm – is the most important factor if you wish to avoid cross-contamination in your dental clinic. Bioburden refers to all organic and inorganic remnants, including the numerous infectious organisms and bacterial biofilms found on the surface of – or inside – dental instruments before cleaning and decontamination, disin- fection and sterilization. The larger the bio- burden, the harder the object is to sterilize. Make the cleaning automatic According to Dr. Zimmerman, automated washing processes in validated machines are the safest and most reliable way to clean and decontaminate your instruments. This is also recommended by the guidelines DGKH and RKI in Germany and the HTM01-05 in England. The boundaries are broken Thanks to today’s extensive international con- tacts, infectious diseases and antimicrobial re- sistance (antibiotic resistance) spread quickly to parts of the world where they were once scarce. People travel–and so do infectious diseases and other devastating microbiological capabilities. Every second, 25 people cross a national border. This is the equivalent of about 1 billion interna- tional travellers annually, not to mention the movement of all industrial products and food supplies. The increased globalization places new de- mands at individual levels – to think globally and act locally. Virus and the global man With the body as a method of transport, we humans bring viruses and resistant bacteria to the places we visit and we take new ones back home with us. Among the known killers are HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tuberculo- sis, swine flu, MRSA, antimicrobial resistance, etc., which are spread directly or indirectly and mostly by blood, saliva and body secretions. But these harmful microorganisms are not the only ones to cause damage. Even the mi-
  14. 14. Risk management Handpieces and turbines are the two most dangerous sources of infection in any dental clinic. Blood and secretions from patients can hide in their internal lumens and cavities. This is why hygiene should always be a top priority, when handling these rotating instruments.
  15. 15. NITRAM DENTAL28 29NITRAM DENTAL Hepatitis C VIRUS About 3 % of the world’s population has been infected with Hepatitis C virus. There are more than 170 million chronic carriers who are at risk of developing liver cirrhosis and/or liver cancer. Source: WHO Handpieces and turbines that are in contact with the patient’s mucous membrane and body fluids may represent a high risk of cross- contamination for both patients and staff. The reason is that these rotating instruments have internal lumens and cavities where bac- teria and viruses can hide during cleaning. Air and water supply The air and water channels in rotating instru- ments are easy targets for contamination in the form of saliva or possible blood resi- due from the patient’s mouth. Hand- pieces and turbines can suck these flu- ids into its internal channels via the re-suction and capillary action effect that occurs when the instrument stops. Microorganisms in the channels can be traced even after proper sterilization of the rotat- ing instruments if they have not been properly cleaned prior to sterilization. Pathways of infection Hidden dangers in the dental clinic
  16. 16. NITRAM DENTAL30 31NITRAM DENTAL Tuberculosis About one third of the world’s population is infected with tuberculosis germs–one new infection per second. Tuberculosis is a world leader in the statistics of fatal infectious diseases. Source: WHO Microbiology Bacteria and viruses in the oral cavity Bacteria play an important role in the oral cavity, both as a part of the normal flora and as disease-causing agents. Under unfavour- able conditions, some bacteria form endo- spores by enveloping themselves in a capsule that is highly resistant to dehydration, acids and heat – including boiling for several hours. Disinfection doesn’t kill endospores The purpose of sterilization is to destroy all microbial life, including large numbers of highly resistant bacterial endospores. Disinfection eliminates virtually all recognized pathogenic microorganisms but not necessarily bacterial endospores. This means that disinfection pro- cesses lack the margin of safety provided by sterilization procedures. The trouble with toxins To survive and multiply, bacteria absorb sub- stances from their surroundings, forming enzymes and toxins. These enzymes are ex- creted into the environment to break down the surrounding tissue into small molecules, which are then absorbed by the cell. Toxins reduce the body’s defence against infections and help spread disease-causing bacteria. An instrument that has been sterilized but not sufficiently cleaned may be free of living mi- croorganisms but smeared with toxins, which can result in acute inflammatory reactions in the body. Fight the resistance Bacteria can also produce enzymes or genes that carry antibiotic resistance – these sub- stances can be released into the surround- ings and picked up by other bacteria. ESBL (Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase resis- tance gene) is a newly recognized and severe problem in health care. In the summer of 2010, the world received news about the antibiotic resistance gene NDM-1 (New Delhi Metallo Beta-Lactamase 1) which even further re- duces our possibilities for treating bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance is a far larger problem than the environmental carbon dioxide issue and global warming! This has also been iden- tified as one of the top-priority international issues by both the EU and the USA. Viruses are heat-sensitive, but … Viruses comprise a separate group within micro- biology because they do not have an independent metabolism and cannot replicate independently. In contrast to bacteria, viruses interfere with the metabolism of the host cells and use these to rep- licate (e.g. HIV). Most viruses are heat-sensitive. Several types lose their ability to cause disease if they are heated to temperatures in excess of 60°C for 30 minutes. An exception is the hepatitis B virus, which can tolerate temperatures between 90°C and 100°C for short periods. Biofilm–a hard nut to crack Certain bacteria can form biofilm, known in the oral cavity as dental plaque. The bacterial colony with- in biofilm has a very high resistance to chemicals and antibiotics, as well as to pH and temperature variations. Biofilms have been found to be involved in a wide variety of microbial infections in the body. Biofilms can also be found on dental instruments, and must be removed via thorough cleaning proce- dures prior to sterilization.
  17. 17. The DAC Universal DAC Universal cleans, lubricates and sterilizes six handpieces and turbines in just 12 minutes. This gets rid of even the most resistant bacteria–and the fully automated process will save you both time and money.
  18. 18. NITRAM DENTAL 3534 NITRAM DENTAL You care for your patients.We know.That’s why the combination autoclave DAC Universal from Nitram Dental is an indispensable tool in your clinic. The DAC Universal is able to clean, lubri- cate and sterilize your handpieces and tur- bines in only 12 minutes. A cleaning effect of 99.979 per cent provides the best possibilities for ensuring a successful posterior steriliza- tion - fighting the risk ofcross-contamination. Killing the resistant bacteria A thorough initial cleaning of both the internal channels and all the external parts is essen- tial for successful sterilization. With the DAC Universal, the cleaning can access the rotat- ing instruments’ internal lumen and cavities, where manual processes often have to give up. During the sterilization, water-saturated steam reaches a temperature of 134°C over a period of three minutes. This kills even the most resistant bacteria and viruses, and elimi- nates the risk of cross-contamination when instruments are used on the next patient. A thorough and extremely safe killer DAC Universal easily conforms to the require- ments of the European standard for small steam sterilizers EN 13060. This standard defines sterility as SAL 10-6 (Sterility Assur- ance Level), which is commonly interpreted as “in one million sterilized items, there must not be more than one microorganism”. In reality, SAL 10-6 is a term defining how long it takes for a sterilization process to kill one million (106 ) endospores forming bacteria on an item and then theoretically calculating twice that time, which will let the process reach SAL 10-6 . This stringent requirement leaves a consid- erable safety margin. The DAC Universal is so thorough that the process reaches a value corresponding to 10-29 . The combination autoclave A life-saving device Clean The unique cleaning program of the DAC Universal ensures the highest level of instrument hygiene. The cleaning process is performed according to the international standard for washer-disinfectors ISO 15883 and its efficacy is tested by several leading dental institutions and universities. Lubricate Proper maintenance helps to extend the lifetime of rotating instruments. The lubrication system of the DAC Universal is tested and approved by leading international manufacturers of handpieces and turbines. Sterilize The sterilization process of the DAC Universal conforms to the European standard for small steam sterilizers EN 13060. Moreover, its efficacy is validated according to the international standard ISO 17665, which describes the requirements for validation and routine control of sterilization processes for medical devices.

A faithful partner Dental Assistant, Radmila Sandu Malmö, Sweden For more than seven years, dental assis- tant Radmila Sandu has worked for dentist Stefan Hagstam in Malmö, Sweden. She has used the DAC Universal in all those years, which has saved her plenty of manual work re- lated to the preparation and maintenance of handpieces and turbines. “Before the DAC Universal, I can easily imag- ine that they used to spend a lot of time on manual cleaning, if the instruments first had to be run through a washing machine and then moved to an autoclave to be sterilized. None of that is now necessary with the DAC Universal. It does it all in one go”, says Radmila. More hands, less stress The extra time that Radmila gains by using the DAC Universal is used to assist in other areas in the clinic, as required. “With the DAC Universal, I have extra time to assist the dentist and help the patients, so they feel they receive the best possible ser- vice. It also means that we rarely experience stress here at the clinic”, says Radmila, who thinks that the DAC Universal has been a good and faithful partner over the years.
  23. 23. NITRAM DENTAL44 45NITRAM DENTAL The best choice Dentist Christian Bodart Béziers, France Dentist Dr. Christian Bodart is very pleased that he has chosen the DAC Universal for his clinic in the French town of Béziers – both for health and business reasons. “The advantage of the DAC Universal is the guarantee of the complete process of clean- ing, lubricating and sterilizing of our instru- ments between each patient”, says Dr. Chris- tian Bodart and continues: “Saving time enables us to release the assis- tant for other tasks helping at the chair, or administrative tasks. My associate and I are sure that we have made the best choice for our dental clinic.”
  24. 24. NITRAM DENTAL46 47NITRAM DENTAL Axel Posorski Hamburg, Germany With three assistants and three units in his clinic, Dr. Axel Posorski runs a very modern and busy practice in the heart of Hamburg, Germany. Prior to incorporating the DAC Universal in the clinic’s workflow, the hygiene procedure consisted of cleaning and lubrica- tion in one machine, followed by autoclaving in another. “This semi-manual process left a lot to be desired in terms of both cleaning and handling. With a full timetable of clients, the hygiene procedure was simply too time-consuming”, says Dr. Axel Posorski. Small is good The staff do not only save time with the DAC Universal. Dr. Axel Posorski and his team get a better result and are able to spend more time with their patients. Another important aspect is the size of the DAC Universal. Dr. Axel Posorski explains: “The DAC Universal only requires minimal space, reducing the pressure in the steriliza- tion room. I recommend the DAC Universal if you want a reliable hygiene solution and also need additional space in your clinic.” A reliable hygiene solution

Made to fit in Small: The machine has a small footprint so it does not take up unnecessary space. This makes it ideal for even small clinics. Light Requires only one technician for moving, which reduces your handling costs. Quiet No annoying humming sounds. You and your colleagues can enjoy a pleasant working environment. Closed oil system There is no need for extraction. This saves costs and ensures a healthy indoor environment in the clinic.
