  Use and Misuse of Disposable Devices in Dentistry
Mary Govoni, CDA, RDH, MBA
Recent reports of infection control breaches in dentistry have included an allegation that single-use/disposable items were being reused in a practice. It was reported that the dental practice was cleaning the items and placing them in a high-level disinfecting solution (aka “cold sterile”) prior to reuse even though these items were labeled for one-patient use. This is a relatively common practice in dentistry. So, what’s all the fuss about?

  What You NEED to Know About Single-Use Instruments
After using a disposable instrument, it can be pretty tempting to put that instrument through the sterilization process and use it a second time — especially if it seems to be made well and looks like it’s strong enough to handle it. This is something many (if not most) dentists have done at least once to save a little money. Unfortunately, this can result in a variety of problems that do your practice — and your patients — more harm than good.  READ MORE ›

  Single-Use (Disposable) Devices
According to the Food and Drug Administration a single-use device, also referred to as a disposable device, is intended for use on one patient during a single procedure. It is not intended to be reprocessed (i.e., cleaned and disinfected or sterilized) and used on trays. The labeling may not identify the device as single-use or disposable. If a device does not have reprocessing instructions, regardless of labeling, it should be considered single-use and disposed of appropriately (i.e., according to federal, state, and local regulations) after one use.  READ MORE ›
