The Importance of Good Sterilization

The Importance of Good Sterilization

Proper sterilization is as important as good dental health or a clean house. You wouldn’t forget to brush your teeth or live in a messy home, so why risk poor quality sterilization? Good sterilization starts with high quality purified water, and there’s really no other place to turn for this than Crystal Clear.

Crystal Medic is the top quality bottled purified water from Crystal Clear Products. It is most commonly used in the science and critical cleaning industries, and has been subject to a host of stringent processes and standards such as the European Pharmacopoeia (EP), the British Pharmacopoeia (BP), the Health Technical Memorandums (HTM) 2030 and 01-05, plus the British Standards BS-EN 13060.

In this economic climate, people are looking to save money on everything from lab supplies to dental supplies, but skimping out on proper sterilization means there could be a danger of causing damage to your customers, whether that’s to their dental health or providing them with products without proper sterilization. There are many websites telling you how to save money on things like sterilization, disinfection and preservation products, but what you pay for is what you get.

Paying for the highest quality DI water means you and your customers can rest assured that you and they are getting the best sterilization possible. Crystal Medic purified water is the choice of sterilization for professionals across the country because of its ability to achieve complete sterilization and improve the lifespan of appliances across the spectrum, whether that’s dental supplies or lab appliances.

Good Sterilization Practice

Good Sterilization Practice

You’re a dentist or an orthodontist; heck, you could even work in a blue chip organisation – but if you don’t sterilize properly, you’re more likely than not, putting your patients or clients’ health at risk.

Bad sterilization practices mean rusty equipment – literally! If you don’t look after your appliances, their lifespan is shortened – costing you more money in the long run and risking your patients’ or clients’ health. Using the right cleaning products, coupled with a good cleaning routine, ensures clean appliances that go further and last longer.

Purified water is one way of sterilizing your appliances. Crystal Medic Purified Water is a high quality, high purity bottled water that is most commonly used in autoclaves, steam sterilizers, critical cleaning, industry and science based organisations. The purified water meets with a host of strict industry standards, as well as having its own in-house and 3rd party checking systems, all to make sure you get the most high quality purified water in the UK and Europe.

Here are a number of ways you can disinfect and sterilize your appliances after rigorous use:

Keep them away from heat. The more heat, chemicals and sterilizing gases you use on your appliances, the shorter their life span. First, carefully disassemble and pre-wash the appliances. This causes any residue left on them to be removed. Ideally, they should be disassembled, washed, dried, and then re-assembled without using any (or many) tools, to preserve the coating of the appliances. Strict attention must be paid to the temperature they are cleaned at, especially plastic appliances. Ideally, do not use temperatures exceeding 45°C or 113°F on plastic products.

Sterile or deionized water, such as the Crystal Medic Purified Water, is recommended for thorough cleaning of many products because of its high purity. Dry each component, also thoroughly, ideally in a warm-air oven, not exceeding temperatures of 45°C or 113°F, especially on plastic items.

Regular cleaning and proper drying of your components minimises the multiplication of bacteria on the appliances, giving them a longer life span and minimising risk to patients’ health.

Appearance Counts!

Appearance Counts!

If you want good teeth, you have to be prepared to pay for them. The most expensive dentists and orthodontists charge more for their state-of-the-art equipment than anything else, but the rewards are worth it. If you have sparklers that look great, not only will you feel great but you’ll also get noticed. Your personal appearance counts for a whopping 55 per cent when you meet someone new according to age-old research, so having sparklers that gleam will always work to your advantage.

Many things play a part in good oral hygiene; brushing twice a day, flossing, using a good quality mouthwash and the most important, visiting a good dentist at least twice a year for a check up. A good dentist is not only determined by the service they provide and their knowledge of your teeth, but by the equipment they use. Poor quality equipment means poor quality oral hygiene, and no matter how knowledgeable the dentist is, if they don’t have the right equipment, they can’t treat you properly.

Crystal Clear’s Crystal Medic® purified water is the purest purified water and has been approved for use in the critical cleaning industry. It is the most widely used form of high purity bottled water as it has been subject to a number of strict measures to ensure it stays that way. It is available with an incredibly low count of micro organisms, endotoxins and conductivity, and is known to improve the working life of appliances dramatically by achieving complete sterilisation.

The form of DI water also conforms to a host of UK and European standards, including the British Pharmacopoeia (BP), the European Pharmacopoeia (EP), British Standard BS-EN 13060 and the Health Technical Memorandums (HTM2030 / HTM01-05), as well as the EP Bulk Packaged Purified Water. Dental surgeries that use Crystal Medic® purified water have been known to provide some of the best services and use the cleanest (and best) appliances that have been thoroughly sterilised. In addition to this, Crystal Medic® constantly carry out research to develop improved products all the time, which means dental surgeries and blue chip organisations that use Crystal Medic® have the choice of constantly updating their purified water products.

For fabulous sparklers, choose a well reputed dentist that not only provides the best services, but also has high quality equipment, such as Crystal Medic® purified water. Remember, appearance counts so make it worth your while!
