Care of Stainless Steel Dental Tools
Many of your primary dental instruments are made of stainless steel that needs to be taken care of properly. Reserve a sink specifically for pre-washing your dental tools. Place instruments in a surgical pre-soak bath for at least ten minutes before scrubbing with a nylon bristle brush. Never use wire brushes on stainless steel dental instruments. Once pre-cleaned, essential dental tools should be steam sterilized in an approved sterilization unit. Hinged instruments should be in the open position during the sterilization process.
