Blood Pathogens and Dental Instruments

Pathogens (pathogen) can cause diseases collectively known microorganisms and parasites. The vast majority of microorganisms, including viruses, chlamydia, rickettsia, mycoplasma, bacteria, spirochetes and fungi; parasites are protozoa and insects softly. pathogens are parasitic organisms, the natural host for the parasitic plants and animals and people. can infect people of over 400 species of microbes, they are widely present in the mouth, nose, throat, gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract, and skin. And blood pathogens in the blood is the parasitic infection between virus such as HIV infection, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, malaria, etc.


One of the common reasons for dental instrument re-tipping is corrosion on the blade of the instruments. This corrosion is totally preventable by washing the instruments after each use.
The corrosion is caused by blood pathogens in the saliva. If these pathogens are not washed off thoroughly, it will cause corrosion on the instrument. 
You may be curious about what I can do for your dental instruments if they are corroded. First, if the corrosion is not too deep I may be able to polish it out of the instrument. There are a number of tools to do this depending on the angle and type of instrument. If the damage is on the cutting edge it really depends on how deep the corrosion is whether I can save the end or not. Second if the corrosion is in the cutting edge, then I may have to grind it off to save the instrument. You should note that some corrosion can be taken out but the instrument is permanently pitted. 
This corrosion will destroy your mirrors and require new mirror ends be installed. Scalars and other instruments can corrode on the sharp edge of the instrument causing the need for re-tipping. This can be quite annoying when your instruments are new or newly sharpened and already need to be re-tipped. Should I mention the cost, it can add up fast. Improper cleaning and then using the autoclave will only make the corrosion worse.
