UCLA School of Dentistry Recommends Ultrasonic Cleaning

Ultrasonic Cleaning of Dental Instruments

Ultrasonic Cleaning of Dental Instruments

Ultrasonic cleaners are found with great regularity in dental healthcare. In the UCLA School of Dentistry website there is a chapter on sterilization in the Infection Control Manual. The chapter provides an excellent description on the workflow and processes involved. Dental Treatment Facilities (DTFs) must have a Central Sterilization Room (CSR). In the physical design of the facility, using instrument cassettes and ultrasonic cleaning aids in processing efficiency. In the sterilization process, various steps are given. For instrument cleaning, ultrasonic cleaning is the recommended option. The cleaning solution must be able to remove protein, blood and other debris. The solution must be changed regularly or whenever visibly soiled.
