ANUS DENTAL welcomes your questionnaire and the opportunity to demonstrate how
we handle patient protection and sterilization techniques . We want everyone to feel

Processes & Flows of Sterilization
Dental instruments are precision tools which require frequent maintenance. International
standards using CE certified sterilisation machines are used for sterilisation of
instruments and equipments . At Anus Dental we selet our dental units,handpieces and
any other machines not only based on their technological advancements but also for
their specific design focus on sterilization approaches.
At Anus Dental dental instruments are individually packed and sealed by autosealer
machine then autoclaved by pre-vacuumed autoclave units in viewpacks for individual
patient. Every individual pack of dental instruments are dated to uphold high standards
of sterilisation.
At Anus Dental single use non-woven materials are used to protect our sterilized dental
instruments rather than conventional woven wraps which are normally used at other
clinics and hospitals as single use non-woven materials are more bacteria resistant.
Continuous efforts are made to improve the sterilization standard requirements.
At Anus Dental all the instruments and equipments are fully and properly sterilized, extra
steps are taken to ensure complete sterilization. Effectiveness of autoclaves is tested on
a day to day basis. Instruments and clinical handpieces are autoclaved separately in
separate sterilization machines.Instruments are rechecked,packed,dated and stored in
clean area after autoclaving.Sterilisation is an important factor at Anus Dental
At Anus Dental potential cross-contamination of instruments is prevented as it organizes
its steriization rooms in separated hygienic and unhygienic areas. To prevent bacterial
growth sterilized clean instruments are kept under controlled cool temperatures and
humidity for 24 hours a day throughout the week. Backup generators are in place should
a power supply disturbance occur.

Dental Instruments & Equipments Cleanliness
At Anus Dental several rounds of processing to ensure total safety and total sterilization
of all dental instruments is done. Initially dental instruments are soaked in rapid multi-
enzyme detergent for pre-disinfectant cleaning. The enzymes digest all human
secretions including blood, saliva, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and
mucopolysaccharides that carries possible bacteria and viruses. Ultrasonic machines
are used in which the instruments are transferred to clean and remove tiny or invisible
dirt trapped in corner or any spiral of instruments. It can be used for removal of protein
and lipid-based soils which is used on surgical instruments, flexible fiberoptic
endoscopes, rigid scopes and apparatus where blood, protein, mucous and lipids form
hard to remove soils.
At Anus Dental measurement monitoring and indicators of dental instrument sterilization
process are done to cross check and re-confirm that instruments are sterile and
sterilization machines are performing well. Light differentiates, temperature pressure
gauge readings, time are recorded during each pre and post vacuum autoclaving period
and mechanical measurements on our autoclaving machines are charted at every
machine cycle.
At Anus Dental the individual packs of autoclaved dental instruments that have
undergone steam sterilization, are packed with sterile tape external indicators.
At Anus Dental the highest level of examination is used to determine factors affecting
treatment infection and death.3M Sterigage an additional internal indicators is also used
to check that each pack of critical dental instrument package has been exposed to
steam at the correct time and temperature. The Steriage check is Class 5 level check,
the highest level of examination, used to determine factors affecting treatment infection
and death.

Indicator Verification System for Biological Sterilization by
3M Attest
Autoclaves or pressure steam machines does not garanteed total sterilization as at Anus
Dental, infection control and sterilizations is of top most priority we not only just use
chemical but biological checks are done to ensure complete sterilizations. At Anus
Dental The Attest Biological Rapid Monitoring System by 3M ESPE is used to verify the
effectiveness of our sterilization efforts frequently.

product history is used as biological indicator system for monitoring steam sterilization.
