Dental Infection Control Products: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Dentistry is one area of healthcare that is prone to infections due to constant exposure to biological materials such as saliva, blood and mucous. Both dental healthcare professionals and patients are exposed to blood-borne diseases including HIV and Hepatitis B. Growing concern over cross-infection as well as spread of infectious diseases in dental clinics is driving demand for dental infection control products. The constant threat posed by virulent infections such as Ebola is driving focus on infection control measures in dental practices. Adoption of standards for dental infection control and occupational safety is also necessitating implementation of measures to ensure safety of dental healthcare professionals through the use of infection control products such as protective barrier clothing, eye protection, face mask, and scrub clothing, among others.
Rising demand for dental treatments and increasing awareness about hygiene are expected to drive dental clinics to adopt stringent cross-infection control procedures. Increasing healthcare expenditure, especially in developing countries also bodes well for market growth. While efforts focused on infection control are not aimed at comprehensive prevention of infections, emphasis is largely on minimizing the risk associated with transmission of infectious agents. The market is witnessing a paradigm shift in focus towards green or eco-friendly products, in response to global efforts to combat environmental pollution.
Masks and gloves are the most common and cost-effective means of infection control, and offer the first line of defense to both patients and healthcare providers against infections. While dental masks act as barriers and prevent transmission of infective agents between patients and hospital staff, the use of gloves has also become a routine practice for personnel working in dental practices.

Infection control in dental settings across the country has come into the limelight following recent incidents of disease outbreaks due to non-compliance with infection control standards in clinics.
