I want to dispense with standard phrases about how wonderful and unique we are. More precisely, a potential consumer should see evidence of advertising slogans and be sure that this is not a lie. From the point of view of knowledge about dentistry, I am an advanced consumer. Moreover, during the last 3 years, complicated dental treatment has gone through, including reconstructive surgery of the alveolar process, implantation, lingual orthodontics and total orthopedics. Therefore, I have a moral right and medical competence (in the profession - 32 years) to give some tips on how to choose a high level clinic:
Multidisciplinary clinic with full service cycle
If the clinic meets all of the above criteria, the cost of services will be high. But the requirements you can show maximum. Orthokon Plus meets all of the above criteria, as you can see by examining our website and visiting our clinic.

This classification is universal for all medical instruments and equipment, but the drawback of the scheme is its excessive simplicity, which does not take into account the specifics of certain instruments. For example, dental handpieces can be attributed to semi-critical instruments and accordingly only subject to disinfection, but knowing the features of dental practice, namely, when the dentist is working, microtraumas of the oral mucosa are possible. Almost all medical measures in the treatment of complicated forms of caries and inflammatory periodontal diseases are classified as surgical interventions. Because of the design features of the dental handpiece, suction into the internal channels of aerosols consisting of the smallest drops of water, oil, microorganisms, pus, saliva, blood, dust, particles of tooth tissues and dental stone, etc., occurs, therefore, this the instrument must be subjected to all three stages of treatment, including sterilization after each episode of use (see dental handpiece treatment scheme).
Accordingly, the regulatory framework of this sphere of disinfection and sterilization activity in dental practice is much outdated, including the norms for equipping the dentist’s workplace with dental tips.
Increase the quality of the disinfection and sterilization measures carried out with regard to dental handpieces to dental drills due to the complementation of workplaces in accordance with the norms, the introduction of the newest disinfection and sterilization equipment (see the section on modern disinfection and sterilization equipment), and the strengthening of control over the measures taken.
Dental handpieces refer to medical products that are in direct contact with the patient’s wound surface, with mucous membrane and blood inside the patient’s body. Thus, the tips should be attributed to a group of medical devices that must be sterilized after the end of their operation. Since dental tips have internal cavities (ducts, sprays) and taking into account the aspiration effect of air-driven tips, all dental tips should be sterilized only in a «B» autoclave. The temperature of the sterilization mode is indicated by marking on the surface of the tip. Usually this temperature is 135 ° С. The use of higher temperatures leads to the destruction of the structural elements of the tip, especially the light guides.
In some cases, manufacturers mark the surface of the tip body with a symbol indicating the possibility of carrying out thermal disinfection during operation with the tip or during pre-sterilization preparation of the product. Thermodisinfection can be carried out in an aqueous medium at a temperature of 93-95 ° C.
When chemical disinfection is carried out, immersion of the tip into the solution is not allowed. It is necessary to take into account the manufacturer’s recommendations regarding the possibility of using chemical agents for disinfection, since many of them can cause corrosion and have a destructive effect on the light guides. Some firms produce hygienic centers for the care of handpieces, which may have programmed process control.
