Dental Bib Chains are Potential Source for Infection and Disease
Date:3/22/2011

l Hygiene titled "Infection Control Update," Dr. John Molinari, an international expert in the areas of infection control and infectious disease in dentistry, referenced a study he conducted that looked at the presence and composition of bacterial contaminants on patient bib chains before and after patient care appointments. His results showed that microbial contamination was present on both metal and coiled plastic bib chains after use during patient care, with the highest bacteria levels found on bib chains that were not cleaned between patient uses.

"Society is putting an emphasis on healthier living," Kelsch says. "We're seeing an increased awareness of infection control and disease prevention everywhere we look. Grocery stores provide hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes for cart handles; health clubs provide disinfectant sprays so you can clean up equipment after you've used it. If you take the trouble to do those things – then one simple solution to protect yourself from dirty bib chains is to insist on disposable bib holders."

In addition to providing patients with a safer dental visit, Kelsch notes that disposable dental bib holders are critical tools in the fight against the creation of more "superbugs."

"If the infection route – dirty dental chains – is destroyed, the infection is not spread," she says. "No infection means no antibiotics, and the improper use of antibiotics is what contributes to the creation of superbugs."
