How this dual-purpose enzymatic cleaner can save practices time and money.
Katie Fisher, an expanded function dental auxiliary, was first introduced to Sani-Soak Ultra from Enzyme Industries at a dental meeting. She took a few samples back to Dr. Mark L. Grosko’s endodontics practice in Newark, Ohio, and together the team experienced first-hand how the dual-purpose, anti-corrosive, enzymatic cleaner can save a dental practice time and money.
Sani-Soak Ultra is an environmentally friendly product that can be used in the ultrasonic bath to clean instruments and as a wet evacuation line cleaner. Fisher has used Sani-Soak Ultra for about six months and has noticed that it’s much easier to unclog suction lines and that instruments come out of the bath looking and feeling cleaner - and that helps to extend their life and reduce the amount of time it takes to maintain them.
What Katie Fisher, EFDA, says about Sani-Soak Ultra
When I first started using the samples I received at the trade show, I really liked the way Sani-Soak Ultra smelled, and the instruments came out a lot brighter. They just felt cleaner and didn’t have any film on them. After we finished using the product we already had in the practice, I told Dr. Grosko we should buy Sani-Soak Ultra because I really liked what I saw with the samples. He agreed and we’ve been using it ever since.
I haven’t noticed any rusting or corrosion on the instruments since we started using Sani-Soak Ultra, as was often the case with other similar products we had been using. The instruments just didn’t come out as shiny. The old products would cause a tarnish after going through the autoclave and the instruments would look dull. With Sani-Soak Ultra, our instruments keep their shine, and I really like that. Other cleaners also don’t remove all the debris like Sani-Soak does.
Sani-Soak Ultra also helps keep our suction lines clean. We do a lot of surgeries, so blood gets stuck in the lines, which can be difficult to flush out. This cleaner unblocks or unclogs the lines, and that’s a real plus.
It’s also easy to use. I fill up the ultrasonic bath and soak the instruments. We have a 3-gallon ultrasonic, so I just put two pumps in and I’m done. At the end of the day or after a surgery, I’ll drain what’s in the ultrasonic bath into a bucket and clean my lines that way. So, it’s a multifunctional product, which is another benefit.
With Sani-Soak Ultra, we spend less time cleaning instruments and performing maintenance. If all the debris doesn’t come off the instruments, for example, you have to scrub them until it does. That takes time. You also don’t have to leave them in the ultrasonic bath water as long as you would with other products. The enzymes break up the debris, so you don’t have to wait as long for the instruments to finish cleaning. This gives you a much faster cycling of the instruments through the sterilization process. The same is true with the lines. If your lines aren’t clean after you run the liquid through them, you have to use another bucket. After a surgery, there will be a lot of blood stuck in the tube, and you typically have to rinse and rinse to get it all out. With Sani-Soak Ultra, if you let it soak in the ultrasonic bath, take it out and just rinse once, it’s cleared.
Sani-Soak Ultra saves practices time and money, making it easier to clear suction lines and to keep instruments shiny. I would recommend this product to any practice looking to reduce the amount of time they spend cleaning and maintaining instruments.
