Most dentists do not test their water lines, however “biofilm” or bacteria accumulation, is a common problem in dental waterlines. When a dentist uses a handpiece to prepare a tooth or a hygienist uses an ultrasonic scaler to clean your teeth, the water from those instruments is spraying into your mouth.
We’ve updated our water system to include charcoal filtration and UV disinfection to our water lines, filtering out and eliminating 99.99% of all particles, toxins, bacteria, and viruses from the water used in our office. This prevents the possible ingestion of any harmful chemicals or toxins into your system.
We understand your concerns, so when it comes to health and safety, we’re way ahead of the rest. By implementing sterilization and disinfection protocols far beyond guidelines recommended by the CDC and ADA, we know we’re offering our patients the highest level of care available in modern dentistry. At PGA Dentistry, you can trust that your dental visits are always in a safe, clean, and sterile environment.
