Why You Should Use Barriers When You Can


In a previous post I mentioned the importance of minimizing disinfectant build-up on your equipment (https://www.dental-techguru.com/post/spray-wipe-spray-wipe) . I have seen thousands of dollars in damage done to equipment by disinfectants. Most manufacturers have disclaimers in their warrantees specifically exempting damage from disinfectants. When practical, it is preferable to use barriers rather than disinfectants.





Plastic barriers can be found inexpensively and they conform to CDC guidelines for infection control. (https://www.cdc.gov/.../gui.../disinfection-guidelines-H.pdf). Not only will using barriers protect your equipment from harmful disinfectants, they will protect from other environmental hazards all while protecting patients and staff from cross-contamination.
