Zenith Dental Products, working with an exclusive distribution agreement with Micrylium Laboratories of Canada, introduces "Lines" water line cleaner. "Lines" meets and exceeds the CDC standard of care specifications and it is environmentally safe for the dental office equipment as well as the dental staff and patients.
Testing of over 4,000 dental waterlines across North America proved that traditional Dental Clinics using city water have an average of about 375,000 CFU (Colony Forming Units) of bacteria per milliliter of water. Federal standards for drinking water in the US and Canada set the maximum at 500 CFU of bacteria with no E.Coli or Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The American Dental Association recommends that all dentists provide treatment water with less than 200 CFU/mL.
Lines should be used on a weekly basis to ensure that the bacteria counts in the dental water lines will be well under the federal and ADA standards. It takes just seconds to run the solution into the tubing Friday night and a 30 second water purge on Monday morning is all that is needed.
Lines is a Chlorhexidine based product and can also be used for hygiene procedures, protecting the dental staff and patients from bacterial aerosols generated by scaling. It is glycerin-free and will not jeopardize dental bonding, plus it does not contain peroxide so it won't corrode the metals and clog valves in the dental instrumentarium.
Lines is packaged in cases of 10 ¿ 16.9 oz. bottles that can attach to existing independent reservoir systems, or in a bulk container which can be used to fill existing water line bottles. Lines is ready to use and does not require measuring or mixing. Lines is available through your US dental supply dealer. For more information contact Zenith Dental Products at 1-800-662-6383.
