Dentistry – a high risk activity? Practical infection considerations for dental practitioners.

Mikael Zimmerman

Maintenance and strengthening fragile protective barriers – an important issue for all dental health care professionals

Cross infection control must be considered as today’s most important tasks in all health care systems. The level of antibiotic resistant bacteria is increasing globally, which will have consequences on all current available advanced treatments.

There is an increasing risk of severe infection both to the professionals and to patients, so choosing the correct equipment and using & maintaining it properly are more important than they have ever been.

The human body has protective barriers in form of the skin, the mucous membranes, and the enamel/dentin of the teeth. Hygiene and infection control in clinical dentistry must encompass not only the risk of transmitting infection but also susceptibility to infection.

In all health care situations, it is important to consider the consequences of opening, penetrating, or altering fragile barriers. A key issue is to maintain or strengthen important protective functions.
