Dental tooth clening
Hi Doctor, Recently I visited a dental clinic done  tooth cleaning for one of my teeth.. next day Im I was little bit scared about if there any chance of getting  infections like hiv or hep c due to not properly sterilizing the bit used for tooth cleaning.. However I asked  this question to them, they said it is autoclaved.                                       I'm bit stressed post this episode.

Hi! There is no need to worry, when we autoclave the instruments the temperature inside the autoclave is so high that there is no chance of any pathogen to survive, making sure all the equipments are sterlised.
Next Steps
continue your treatment
