Effective and efficient infection control in the dental office is essential for the safety of patients . At Dr. Khullar’s Dental Clinic, sterilization is given utmost importance and we comply to all international standards of sterilization. Some of our practices that we employ in every dental treatment at all our clinics are:
This is a revolutionising technology as it provides a feedback on the sterilization process by a unique color coding. The material is used only once the sterilization process is complete.
In this technology, the steam entering the chamber from the water reservoir displaces the air as it leaves the chamber. The combination of pressurization of the chamber, steam and a high temperature for a prolonged period has the ability to kill virtually all microorganisms. A typical cycle for wrapped instruments includes heat-up and pressurization time, followed by a 15-to-30-minute cycle during which sterilization is taking place (121°C at 15 psi).
An ultrasonic cleaner uses sound waves, that are outside the human hearing range to form oscillating bubbles, a process called cavitation. These bubbles act on debris to remove it from the instruments. All our equipment are passed through ultrasonic sterilization technique to ensure the highest standards of sterilization in our dental clinic.
We use disposable items like surgical face masks, eye glasses, patient drapes,gloves, plastic cups and other similar consumables wherever possible to maintain hygiene during our treatment.
All surfaces that might possibly come into contact with infection-carrying materials are disinfected with approved chemicals between each treatment.
