90 Where There Is No Dentist 2012
Keep your sterile instruments together in a clean place.
Wrap them in a clean cloth
OR Leave them in disinfectant
Mark with tape the names
of the instruments inside.
Before you use any instrument again,
wash it with clean water—to remove
the taste of the disinfectant.
Germs living in dirty cotton can easily go inside the socket and start an
infection. It is important, therefore, to keep the cut pieces in a container that
is clean and has a cover. Use clean tweezers to remove the cotton gauze
when you need some.
Also, keep your room and work area clean. Sweep or mop the floor one or
two times a day, and wipe down the chair and tables after every patient.
Staying clean is a part of staying healthy.
