How State-of-the-Art Sanitization Technology Can Ensure Your Safety

How State-of-the-Art Sanitization Technology Can Ensure Your Safety

These days, health and safety are top-of-mind — especially when it comes to healthcare settings. You deserve to be confident that your doctor, dentist, and other healthcare providers prioritize sanitization, and at Touni Orthodontics, we do just that.

Walied Touni, DDS, MSD, and our team use state-of-the-art sanitization technologies to ensure patient safety at our dental clinic in Sunnyvale, California. And if you’re curious about exactly how dental sanitization works, you’re in the right place.

Here, we explain the basics of dental sanitization and highlight three technologies we use: the Safe-Flo™ saliva ejector, the Sterisil® Straw V2, and the Mocom Sterilizer — B Futura.

The basics of dental sanitization

Dental sanitization encompasses a variety of procedures and equipment designed to eliminate pathogens and prevent cross-contamination between patients. This includes sterilizing instruments, disinfecting surfaces, and using personal protective equipment (PPE) when appropriate.

Proper sanitization is essential to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. At Touni Orthodontics, we’ve invested in the most advanced sanitization equipment available to maintain a safe environment for both patients and staff.

Feel confident with our suite of sterilization equipment

At Touni Orthodontics, we prioritize your safety by incorporating advanced sanitization technologies into each procedure. The Safe-Flo saliva ejector, Sterisil Straw V2, and Mocom Sterilizer — B Futura represent our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of hygiene.

Safe-Flo saliva ejector

The Safe-Flo saliva ejector is an innovative tool designed to enhance safety during dental procedures. Traditional saliva ejectors can pose a risk of backflow, where contaminated fluids from a patient’s mouth can re-enter the suction line and potentially be passed on to subsequent patients.

The Safe-Flo saliva ejector addresses this concern with a unique one-way valve that prevents backflow, so all suctioned fluids are safely removed without risk of contamination. The Safe-Flo saliva ejector contributes to a safer clinical environment and offers priceless peace of mind for you.

Sterisil Straw V2

Water quality in treatment rooms is another important aspect of infection control, and the Sterisil Straw V2 is a sophisticated device designed to maintain the highest standards of water purity in dental water lines. It continuously disinfects water to eliminate harmful bacteria and pathogens, so only clean, safe water is used during dental treatments.

Mocom Sterilizer — B Futura

Last, but not least, sterilizing dental instruments is essential to prevent the spread of infections. We use the Mocom Sterilizer — B Futura, an autoclave that offers advanced sterilization capabilities.

The B Futura sterilizer uses cutting-edge technology to achieve rapid and effective sterilization cycles, saving time and ensuring complete sterilization. It’s capable of sterilizing a wide range of instruments, including complex and hollow items, so all tools used in dental procedures are free of contaminants.

Dental sanitization and the technologies that support it are critical to safe and healthy dental procedures. Our commitment to using advanced sanitization tools underscores our dedication to your health and well-being.
