The cdc set of guidelines for infection prevention in dental care focuses on the procedure for disinfecting and cleaning
This led to the universal recommendation of using wipes over spraying. Because of their ability to cut the “spray and clean” process in half, wipes have become the standard in efficiently keeping facilities clean.
AnTiquated Spray Bottles
Designed for the same outcome, pre-moistened wipes and sprayed solution are very different processes. Pre-mixed solutions can pose a problem if ratios are too strong or weak for the cleaning circumstances. Heavy ammonium based sprays may decimate bacteria, but at the risk of affecting your patients if not given enough time to evaporate.
In addition, the aerosol spray releases chemicals into the air, making it unavoidable to inhale and damage lungs.
Overly diluted solutions may not adequately disinfect surfaces, thus putting patients at risk for infection. Also, spraying surfaces can increase the risk of only spraying in concentrated areas and leaving many surfaces untouched by disinfectants.
Wipes and Force2
Pre-moistened wipes consolidate the spray and wipe into one action. They are guaranteed to cover more surfaces evenly since they are unbound by accurate spraying and are conveniently pre-saturated with correct levels of disinfectant. Though wipes are the most recommended option for disinfecting dental facilities, not all wipes provide the same level of hospital grade care.
Offered in portable canisters and guaranteed to stay moist, Force2 Wipes are an essential tool in keeping dental facilities infection free.
