Level Up Your Infection Control Protocol

Pac-Dent’s air/water syringe tips offer high performance at an affordable cost.

The debate around disposable air/​water syringe tips vs reusable metal tips is not new, but many oral health professionals keep to the adage, “We’ve always used metal air water syringe tips.” Despite rigorous cleaning protocols, such as flushing with water and ultrasonic cleaning followed by sterilization, internal bioburden accumulation in the lumen poses a sterilization risk. Inadequate removal of infectious materials presents significant infection control concerns for both patients and dental practices.

When comparing costs, the expenses associated with cleaning and sterilizing reusable tips must be considered. The potential additional cost of disposable tips must be balanced against the convenience and infection control benefits they offer dental hygienists in their daily practice.
