Dental Waterline Microbial Control

The Importance of Treating Your Dental Unit Water Lines

Sterility of water, even saline solutions, going into the dental unit water bottle does not guarantee the cleanliness of water going into patients’ mouths. Therefore it is vital that you test the contamination levels of your dental water and keep any microbes under control.

HTM 01-05 states that “where monitoring is carried out, the TVC should like between 100-200 colony forming units per millimetre cfu/ml”. Many dental lines will contain bio-film contamination, which sterile water alone will not kill or flush out. To ensure your dental water lines are free from microbial contamination use our specialist, easy to use Sterisil products.


Sterisil Citrisil and Citrisil Blue

Citrisil and Citrisil Blue tablets continuously disinfect and maintain dental water lines. Simply start with one Citrisil Shock tablet and follow with one Citrisil (white) or Citrisil Blue tablet per refill of each self-contained water bottle. Using distilled or purified tap water, the tablet effervesces and provides a safe, pH balanced treatment. Citrisil Blue produces a light blue tint for visual compliance. EPA registered to produce less than or equal to 10 CFU per ml HPC purity; 50 times below the CDC guidelines.

Sterisil Straw

Sterisil Straw and Antimicrobial Bottle are the solution to transitioning from daily tablets to a single yearly change out. The Sterisil Straw works 365 days to continuously disinfect dental unit water lines, while providing safe and clean water for your patients, staff, and dental unit. Simply remove your existing pickup tube and install the new pickup tube with the Sterisil Straw on the barb fitting. Distilled or purified municipal water is recommended for optimum product performance and dental composite bonding.
