Dental Purity water distillation machines allow dentists to take control of their own supply of distilled water so they can ensure patient safety and protect their expensive dental equipment.
Distilled water is water that has been boiled and purified. Distilled water is an important key in preventing bacteria and biofilm build up in your water lines so you can provide a safe water supply for your patients. Pure distilled water also allows for optimum operation, reduced maintenance and increased lifespan for your autoclaves.
Have you ever had this experience… You’re not getting water out of your high-speed hand piece so you call a technician and they find green or brown slime in the tubing. This is biofilm. Biofilm is different types of bacteria living together in a colony that is strong and hard to eliminate. Biofilm is an important patient safety issue that the ADA wants all dentists to take seriously. Prevention, by only using pure, distilled water is vital.
Or maybe you’ve had this experience… Your autoclave needs frequent cleaning or simply won’t function because the water that you are using isn’t as pure as it needs to be. Or perhaps you’ve actually ruined your autoclave because of poor quality water. Again, the solution is to use only distilled water!
Why Do Dentist Need To Use Distilled Water?
PROBLEM #1: Bacteria & Biofilm
According to the American Dental Association, dental unit waterlines have been shown to harbor, in significant numbers, a wide variety of bacteria, fungi, and protozoans.
PROBLEM #2: Sensitive Autoclaves
New autoclaves and Statim® machines require very pure water on a consistent basis or they will not operate properly, will require frequent cleaning and maintenance and could have a shortened lifespan.
PROBLEM #3: Expensive Bottled Water
All dentists should use distilled water in their dental units and autoclaves, but bottled distilled water is heavy, it wastes employee time and it’s more expensive than gasoline.
Here’s How a Dental Purity Distiller Works…
- Your tap water is either manually or automatically supplied to your Dental Purity™ distiller.
- Your Dental Purity™ distiller boils the tap water for prolonged periods, which is recognized by health departments around the world as the best way to kill biological contaminants.
- Your Dental Purity™ distiller then captures and separates the pure steam while the contaminants are left behind in the boiling chamber to be dumped down the drain.
- The pure steam is then cooled back down into pure water and stored in a separate, food-grade storage tank and is ready to be dispensed from your machine.
THE AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION considers biofilm in dental units to be a fundamental patient safety issue and urges dentists to treat bacteria prevention as a high priority!
All dental offices need a reliable source of distilled water in order to ensure the highest level of patient safety and to protect their expensive dental equipment.
biofilm build-up in your dental units
Biofilm build-up in your dental units is a serious patient safety issue that can be a legal risk and can affect patient confidence. The ADA encourages all dentists to take this issue seriously. By only using distilled water in your dental units you are taking an important step to prevent bacterial and biofilm contamination.
your expensive dental equipment
Common contaminants in tap water such as hardness, minerals, and algae can interfere with your expensive dental equipment, shorten the lifespan and greatly increase cleaning and maintenance frequency. By using only pure, distilled water in your dental equipment, such as autoclaves, you can save thousands of dollars over the years.
Perhaps you’re already using distilled water. That’s good, but if you are using bottled water or a low-quality distiller you are most likely spending way too much money. After all, bottled water costs more than gasoline! Dental Purity brand appliances offer dentists the most cost effective solution for distilled water.
$3,600 15-Year Cost
1-2 Year Lifespan
$6,300 15-Year Cost
FORMULA: $795 x 1 (15 year lifespan) = $795; $480 x 7.5 (2 year lifespan) = $3,600; $35 per month x 15 years = $6,300.
