100% STERILIZATION:-  Your safety is our aim. We take care of Sterilization according to the criteria’s of AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION (ADA). { International Standards} .Your safety is our prime importance. We at EKDANTAM call it SAFETY UNCUT .

FOOL-PROOF STERILIZATION IN DENTAL OFFICE– There are some important things that you should know:


Now days the biggest concern for any dental patient is the sterilization techniques employed in the dental practice. As the instrument and equipment directly goes into your mouth, you should ensure proper sterilization protocol is followed .Without proper sterilization deadly cross infections like HIV and Hepatitis B during the dental treatment can occur. We give you information about how EKDANTAM handle our sterilization process.



We are one of the few clinics equipped with most modern B-CLASS AUTOCLAVE from CHESA. With B-CLASS AUTOCLAVE you are assured of 100% sterilization of all the equipment and instruments used during your treatment procedures.


Read more to know how a B-CLASS AUTOCLAVE can make your procedure 100% safe!

Autoclaves commonly sterilize by exposing its items to elevated temperatures of 121 to 134ºC under pressure of 15 to 30 psi, for a holding time of anywhere between three to 30 minutes. The combination of the time, temperature and steam, deliver a powerful kill rate which even the hardest of bacteria find hard to survive. This effective and yet clean method of lethality is unmatched by any of the other methods of sterilization.

However, if there is residual air in the chamber and load, it will interfere with steam-instrument contact and may compromise sterilization. This residual air can prevent penetration of steam to the depths of the instruments leaving your sterilization incomplete.

Types of autoclave:-

The regular (type N) is suitable for sterilizing only unwrapped and solid instruments. The major concern with the N-cycle sterilizers is the non-removal of trapped air, that lead to improper sterilization of instruments.

We at EKDANTAM uses type B Autoclave, the best in its type for sterilization . It can sterilize solid, hollow, and porous instruments, be they wrapped or unwrapped. B-cycle involves the use of active (forced) air removal, usually by using an inbuilt vacuum pump and create a vacuum, thus removing air from the load prior to the chamber being pressurized with steam. This technique allows faster and more effective steam penetration throughout the entire instrument load than the regular autoclaves. You are 100% safe with our sterilization technique!

Instrument Sterilization:

All instruments are thoroughly washed in antiseptic solutions and wiped clean. They are packaged into sterile pouches and vacuum sealed to prevent contamination. Ekdantam has a large separate Sterilization and Disinfection unit utilizing the latest techniques and equipment to ensure patient safety. Ekdantam maintains high international standards of asepsis.



At EKDANTAM  First the instrument are soaked in 2% gluteraldehyde for 2 hours, than  the instrument are cleaned in a ultrasonic chamber, after this the instruments are dried and cleaned and placed in  “SEALED POUCHES”  which eliminates unnecessary handling of individual instruments by the disinfection staff which helps to eliminate exposure to the instruments.  The instruments are then placed into a Digital B class autoclave and autoclaved at 121 degrees. This is the same protocol followed worldwide in operation theaters.

Before surgery:

Fogging Machine for Fumigation

Fogging is done before every surgery. At the beginning of the day the floors are thoroughly mopped with Phenol that leaves the place clean and smelling fresh. Areas are meticulously cleaned with a high power vacuum cleaner to get all the dust  out and prevent air borne infections if any. The chairs and all moving/rotating parts are sprayed with antiseptic solution and wiped clean with a soft cloth. After every patient the same procedure is followed for the chairs to prevent cross infection.

Disposable materials:

We use a fresh, new pair of gloves for every patient that is disposed of immediately after the treatment is completed. In addition we use disposable masks, suction tips and plastic glasses. All local anesthetic is given from sealed syringes that are opened in front of you and disposed of immediately after treatment. We also use filtered water for rinsing your mouth during procedures.
