1. Sterilization Processes & Flow

Dental instruments are precision tools which require regular maintenance. All our equipment’s and instruments are maintained and sterilized according to international standards using CE certified sterilizer machines. Our clinical headpieces, dental units and other machines are selected not only for their technological advancements but also for their specific design focus on sterilization approaches.

Our dental appliances are individually packed and sealed by our impulse auto sealer machine then autoclaved by our pre-vacuumed autoclave units in view packs for each patient. Every pack of dental appliances is dated to uphold standard level of sterilization.

Dr. Monther Numan Dental sterilization efforts are strictly accurate and updated to abide by the sterilization standard requirements. Single use disposable materials are used to protect our sterilized dental instruments that are more bacteria resistant.
Extra steps are taken to ensure all our equipment is properly and fully sterilized. Our autoclave machines are tested daily for its effectiveness. After instruments are autoclaved, instrument is re-checked, packed, dated and stored in a separate clean storage area.

Dr. Monther Numan Dental systematizes its sterilization room in a clockwise direction process preventing any potential cross-contamination of instruments. Sterilized clean instruments are kept under controlled cool temperatures and humidity in preventing the bacteria growth.

2. Dr. Monther Numan Dental Sterilization of Dental Instruments & Equipment Cleanliness

Dental instruments at Dr. Monther Numan Dental undergo several rounds of processing to ensure overall safety and complete sterilization has been met. Dental instruments are initially soaked in rapid multi-enzyme detergent for pre-disinfectant cleaning. The enzymes digest all human secretions including blood, saliva, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and mucopolysaccharides that carry possible bacteria and viruses. Thereafter, the instruments are placed in ultrasonic machines to clean and remove tiny or invisible dirt trapped in instrument corners or spiral.

Indicators and measurement monitoring are done to double check and re-confirm that instruments are sterile and our sterilization machines are performing properly. At Dr. Monther Numan Dental, mechanical measurements on our autoclaving machines are charted at every machine cycle. Temperature, light differentiates, pressure gauge readings are recorded during each pre and post vacuum autoclaving period.

For the autoclaved dental instruments, additionally, biological indicator is being used to check that each parcel of critical dental instrument package has been exposed to steam at the correct temperature and time. This indicator is also use to determine successful sterilization process.
