The oral cavity is the second colony of H. pylori after the stomach. Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection is the main pathogenic factor of chronic active gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric mucosa-associated lymphoma and gastric cancer. In 1994, the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer designated Helicobacter pylori as a class I carcinogen.

The oral cavity is the second colony of H. pylori after the stomach. The detection rate of H. pylori in dental plaque, gingival pocket, dental caries, dental pulp, back of tongue, and saliva are all high. We all know that the patient's mouth is more likely to carry bacteria. During the treatment process, the dentist will be more likely to be infected. So how can our dentists effectively prevent it?

First of all, the most common contact with dentists is dental equipment and patients, so dentists should pay more attention to the control of these two aspects.  

    SAFETY's disinfection dental chair M2+ has well designed the disinfection concept from the two aspects of protecting the safety of doctors and patients. M2+, a three-in-one full course disinfection dental chair, with pipeline disinfection, oral disinfection and air disinfection.

More importantly, there are two 3L large water bottles, A bottle water source to the dentist tray, B bottle water source to the water supply nozzle and three-syringe of the assistant's tray. Pour hypochlorous acid disinfection water in a ratio of 1:4, and then Bacterial disinfection of one line can be performed throughout the treatment process.

  1. Oral disinfection: The disinfectant water from the water bottle can safely enter the patient's mouth, sprayed from the handpieces or sprayed from the three-way syringe. Moreover, it can disinfect the dental plaque on the patient's teeth and the back of the tongue.

3. Air disinfection: Hp in the patient's saliva is particularly high. When treating the patient, the saliva sprayed from the patient's mouth should be effectively prevented. Considering this aspect, SAFETY's M2+ is equipped with an air disinfection machine, which can effectively The concentration of the aerosol sprayed from the patient's mouth, Hp is reduced, and the surface of the dental chair can also be disinfected.
