Innovative dental procedure set to slash fears AND waste


Innovative Dental Procedure Set to Slash Fears AND Waste

Are you scared of the dentist?

According to the British Dental Association, 25 per cent of Brits suffer from some sort of anxiety before walking through the doors of their dental surgery.

However, researchers claim a new idea that encourages teeth to repair themselves could put an end to the dreaded sound of the dentist’s drill.

Boffins from King’s College London believe electricity can be used to strengthen a tooth by forcing minerals into the layer of the enamel.

This technique is likely to hit the dentist’s chair in the next three years, with researchers hoping it will negate the need for drills, injections and fillings.

At the moment, of course, drills, injections and fillings all play an integral role in providing first-class dental care, which means the hazardous waste produced by clinics and surgeries still needs to be managed in the correct way.

Considering dentists and orthodontists are governed by strict legislation surrounding the removal of dental waste, it’s important they partner with a provider who can supply dental waste containers and disposal services designed to meet regulations.

This is where we come in. We’ll provide your clinic or surgery with waste containers that are UN approved, containing an integrated mercury suppressant to limit potential exposure to mercury vapour. We also offer an amalgam separator that stops amalgam particles entering the sewage system through wastewater.
