It’s time for dental practices to up their game when it comes to infection control. The good news is that this can be done more easily, more quickly, more effectively, and more affordably. CleanCert is the only treatment available today that eliminates all five stages of biofilm from one bottle.

COVID-19 has changed us, altering every aspect of our lives. For dental surgeries, the dangers are greater than ever. And not only because of the risk of spreading the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Long-term closures and ongoing limits on the number of treatments mean that dangerous biofilm has had time to develop in in dental waterlines. This puts patients and the dental team at risk of infection.

Biofilms can include disease-causing bugs, such as Legionella, Pseudomonas, E. coli and MRSA. These slimy clusters of bacteria develop in waterlines, equipment (e.g., autoclave reservoirs), on damp or wet surfaces, and on patients’ gums, teeth, and root canals.

Are you doing enough to destroy biofilm?

Is your practice using two disinfection products in your waterlines? One to kill free-floating microbes, and a second shock treatment to shift established biofilm. Maybe you’ve been using these separate, single-action products for a long time, and they seem to work. 

There should be no more than 200 bacteria per millilitre of water, say HTM 01-05 guidelines. But, shockingly, market testing has revealed that many regularly treated dental waterlines continue to carry several thousand bacteria in every millilitre.

There are five stages to the formation of biofilms. Destroying every one of these stages is the only way to be sure of preventing infection.

An all-in-one solution

CleanCert is the only dual-action treatment that is 100% effective, destroying all five stages of biofilm from one bottle.

Other reasons to use CleanCert biofilm remover:

  • It’s non-toxic and hypoallergenic. This makes it 100% safe if spilt on skin, in eyes, or if swallowed.
  • The quick treatment time saves around 90% downtime on dental chair maintenance.
  • It offers a cost saving of up to 70% compared to other products.
  • A single bottle is easier to order, store, manage, and handle.

Hypochlorous (HOCl) is the naturally occurring active ingredient in CleanCert. In different formulations, it is also the basis of OptiZil surface disinfectant and hand sanitiser, and OraWize+ oxidising dental rinse. HOCl kills biofilms and 99.9999% of free-floating microbes in seconds – making it 80 to 120 times more effective than bleach. 

The medical-grade quality of CleanCert Hygiene Ltd’s manufacturing process (ISO 13485) produces the purest forms of HOCl between 150-200 ppm AFC (free chlorine), with a pH balance of 7. Our competitors’ products degrade within a few months, but CHL’s products have an extended shelf life of a year.
