OXNARD, Calif. — More and more dental offices are choosing disposable bib holders to avoid the risk of cross-contamination. Various news report and three separate scientific studies have implicated reusable bib holders as having bacterial contamination that could be a risk to patients and dental workers.
In response to the shift away from traditional bib holders, a new option is now available through major dental distributors. Snap-Its are single-use bib holders made with recyclable plastic. They snap into place on the bib similar to traditional holders and can be taken off and adjusted if a patient gets up out of the chair during a dental procedure.
Snap-Its are a single patient use item and should be disposed of after each patient for proper infection control. Snap-Its can be recycled with other plastic recycling items. They are available to order now in boxes of 200 through most major dental distributors.
