When it comes to purchasing dental supplies, it can be easy to overlook buying the supplies that are essential for combatting and preventing infections in the treatment room. So, with this in mind, we thought we would take a look at the products that we recommend you should buy for preventing infections.

Biohazard Can Liners –  8-10 GALLON Red 250/CT

Normal can liners are often not tough enough to handle the waste that is put in the can. It is recommended that you purchase these specialized Biohazard Can Liners for the safe disposal of all hazardous materials. These can liners will not split, thanks to the tough resin that the liner is made of. To bring attention to the contents to anyone that handles the bag after disposal, each can liner is marked with “Biohazard” in black lettering on a red background for safety.

Defend+Plus Wipes

Defend+Plus wipes are also an essential purchase in our view. The wipes can be used on solid, non-porous surfaces in the dental office, and the disinfectant contained within the wipes has a low ph to prevent and control cross contamination.

These wipes are great for getting rid of Staphylococcus aureus, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella choleraesuis and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The wipes are able to do this thanks to the dual chain quaternary ammonium/alcohol formula that the wipes contain.

Easy Breath Ear Loop Mask

There is nothing worse than having an ill-fitting mask when you are working on a patient. Wearing a mask with an ear loop ensures a tight fit, meaning it won’t move around during a procedure. The masks themselves are resistant to any fluid that they might come into contact with, and they are made of a soft 3 ply material, making the mask comfortable to wear.

Purity Waterline Cleaner

Purity Waterline Cleaner should be added to your dental supplies shopping list. This is a high-quality cleaner that is proven to safely maintain and clean dental unit waterlines. The cleaner contains only natural preservatives, which are excellent and most importantly safe for the continuous cleaning of self-contained water systems.

There are no harsh chemicals in the cleaner, making it environmentally friendly. There is no need to purge the cleaner, and the cleaner is both odourless and tasteless, as well as non-irritating. It is also compatible with all dental unit water systems that are commonly used in treatment rooms.
