Instruments Care
Caring and protecting instruments after their use play a vital role in creating long lasting durability and trouble-free experience, instruments maintenance is as necessary as using them.
Instruments should never be exposed to the contents that are not particularly produced to be used with dental instruments or for instruments cleaning and sterilization etc.

Care & Maintainance

  • Use instruments only for the purpose they were designed for.
  • Handle instruments gently - avoid bouncing, dropping or overstraining.
  • Soak instruments in Haemosol etc. to loosen blood and soil from box locks, ratchets, hinges etc. Clean instruments immediately after use to prevent blood and other debris from drying on to the surface. Blood causes a stain which is difficult to remove, and saline solution is highly corrosive to stainless steel.
  • Rinse all cleaning residue thoroughly off the instrument.
  • Use distilled or dematerialized water only for washing and rinsing as well as for sterilizing, along with a nylon brush, nylon pot scrubber and low-sudsing,  near-neutral detergent (pH 7-a). Normal tap water will leave deposits on the instruments due to the high mineral content.
  • Do not use steel wool, wire brushes, highly abrasive cleaners or detergents with a high pH (B-9) as this will damage the passive layer or skin of your instrument. The so-called passivation process during manufacturing forms a thin protective film on the surface of the stainless steel instrument.
  • Through constant use and repeated processing an instrument will actually passivate itself. Older instruments are well protected by a tough layer of passivation as a result of hundreds of washings, dryings and sterilizations.
  • Make sure your reusable instrument wrappers are rinsed thoroughly to remove all residues of the detergents used for laundering, otherwise staining or corrosion might occur during steam sterilization.
  • Never mix stainless steel instruments with instruments of dissimilar material (carbon steel, copper, brass, aluminum). If a plated instrument is chipped or peeled an electrolytic action will carry particles from the exposed metal on to the surface of the stainless steel instrument. To eliminate problem replace all plated instruments with stainless steel, if possible.
  • Never put stainless steel instruments and plated instruments together in the ultrasonic cleaner, as electrolysis will cause corrosion or etching on the stainless steel instruments.

Cleaning and Sterilization of Instruments

  • Before sterilization all instruments have to be disinfected and cleaned.
  • Before sterilization please use one of the following three cleaning alternatives.
  • Cleaning by Hand
  • Cleaning by hand is efficient, if it is carried out properly.
  • To prevent corrosion or injuries of the instruments, we recommend to use a soft brush and neutral or non-aggressive detergents.
  • Please immediately dry up the instrument after this procedure by using a soft and dry cotton cloth.

Ultrasonic Cleaning 

  • Ultrasonic Cleaning saves time. Secondly it is more efficient than cleaning by hand and lowers the risk of contamination.
  • Thermo disinfections
  • Thermo disinfection is also more efficient than cleaning by hand and lowers the risk of contamination. Mostly the machine is large and is inefficient if chosen for small quantity of instruments.
  • General Words
  • Always make sure to use only those chemicals and solutions which are compatible with stainless steel hand instruments.
  • Use only recognised and permitted method of sterilization.
  • Always keep recommended temperature for sterilisation of instruments otherwise the exceeded temperature will have an unfavourable impact on the hardness of the stainless steel.
