Decontamination in primary care dental practices. Health Technical Memorandum HTM 01-05  Levels – KEY Essential Quality requirement: – to be complied with. Best Practise: – Strive to Achieve. Practise Infection Control Policy All practises must have a policy in place and available for external inspection.

Decontamination environment: Decontamination facilities should be clearly separate from the clinical treatment area” (separate room or rooms clean/dirty).

Dental Unit Water Lines Contamination

Dental Unit Water Lines Contamination

The DUWL contamination is not just about microorganisms suspended in the water, the real problem lies in the presence of a reservoir that provides a constant and continuous source of bacteria, namely the bio-film. It consists of a microbial community that adheres to the inner surface of the dental waterline tubing. Most bio-films are heterogeneous in species composition and morphology, characteristics similar to those found in another bio-film with which dentists are more familiar with, dental plaque. On average the bio-film is 30-50 microns thick and is enclosed in a polysaccharide layer known as the glycocalyx, which provides the bio-films with the property of resistance to some chemical agents. Bacteria derived from the incoming main water are intrinsically resistant to most biocides. These organisms become the primary source for continued contamination of the system. The mature bio-film eventually becomes populated with a wide variety of species of bacteria, fungi and amoebae. In addition growth within the confines of the bio-film enhances bacterial proliferation by binding and retaining a supply...
