6 Products to Help You Prevent Cross-Contamination in Your Practice
As we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis, there is one thing on every dentist’s mind: protecting their patients, dental team, and themselves from harmful pathogens. While personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks, and gowns are essential to keeping everyone in the operatory safe, the products you choose to deliver patient care should align with your infection-control efforts, too. For starters, it helps to have products on hand that are specifically designed to minimize cross-contamination between patients.
For the past 50 years, Centrix has put infection prevention and reducing cross-contamination at the core of its mission. Below are just some of the manufacturer’s leading dental innovations that are designed with single-patient packaging to help prevent the spread of infection during procedures, and ease both patients’ and dental teams’ COVID-19 safety concerns.
Offering an easy cleanup, FluoroDose’s swipe-on application procedure is easier and safer to use than gels and rinses. Each dose of 5% sodium fluoride comes in a convenient single-use LolliPack with a Benda Brush applicator, allowing the varnish to be easily mixed prior to application.
Also offered in a single-dose LolliPack, Champ is a bioactive and light-activated pit-and-fissure sealant that provides the same convenience and patient-friendliness as FluoroDose. It eliminates the need to disinfect syringes, use protective sheaths, or purchase expensive brush tips.
A dual-cure core buildup composite that allows users to build up the coronal core or fabricate a composite post and core that bonds the post, tooth, and core together into an integrated whole, Encore D/C is available in a single-patient, 0.5-mL MiniMix format that protects against cross-contamination.
These single-patient, kaolin clay retraction pastes contain a built-in aluminum chloride hemostatic agent, which helps control bleeding and fluid seepage. Access Edge is formulated with high viscosity, while AccessFLO is a low-viscosity retraction paste. Eliminating the need for syringes, tips, sheaths, and retraction cords, Access Edge and AccessFLO come with free GingiCap compression caps.
Centrix offers 4 unique temporary filling materials to meet every patient’s unique needs, each with a delivery system that requires no mixing, spatulation, or messy placement. Pre-filled unit-dose tips allow for precise delivery into the prep, saving time and reducing waste.
An easy-to-use caries detector available in red or blue indicator colors, Exposé is pre-dried on a Benda Micro applicator and applied to a wet tooth surface to stain the by-products of carious lesions. The single-use applicators make tray setup and infection control simple.
Eliminate cross-contamination with Centrix’s full line of easy-to-use, unit-dose preventive and restorative products.
