Abstract

Dental laboratory personel are at risk of contracting infections from dental prostheses that have not been properly disinfected. A 4% chlorhexidine scrub for 15 seconds followed by a 3-minute contact time with a chlorine dioxide solution was effective in disinfecting contaminated dentures. Chair-side disinfectinn of dental prostheses before laboratory procedures is the key to keeping microbial contamination out of the dental laboratory.
