Sterilization standards/ Infection Control

At Opus Dental Specialities, Mumbai, it is our utmost priority to maintain the highest level of sterilization. Equipped with quality equipment and infrastructure we strive to achieve a top-notch level of infection control.

All our patient scrubs and drapes, and plastic instruments are disposable; hence make up for one time use. Our drilling handpieces are autoclaved after each patient. The coupling has a non-return valve to avoid suck back of contaminated fluid and debris created during drilling. The Diagnostic, Restorative & Surgical Instruments go through a stringent sterilization protocol as per global standards.

  • Step 1 All used instruments are soaked in an antiseptic solution and brushed using an autoclaved brush to ensure thorough cleaning.
  • Step 2 The instruments are then cleansed in an ultrasonic bath, with a disinfectant to remove any debris accumulated on it.
  • Step 3 The instruments are washed in running water and then packed in sterilization pouches or wraps and sealed by heat pressing. These sterilization wraps allow penetration of steam during autoclaving and maintain sterility of the processed instrument after sterilization.
  • Step 4 The wrapped instruments are placed in a Class B autoclave for effective sterilization. We use a class B level autoclave, which is the best recommended for sterilization of all dental instruments.

For faster sterilization, in between patients, especially the turbines, we use the Ultrafast automatic sterilizer. This has a cycle of only 8 minutes.

All the sterile wraps are coded to indicate the batch of sterilization.

At Opus Dental Specialities, we maintain high standards of sterilization to ensure our patients' safety and the best quality of treatment
