Dr. Rathika Rai, Dr. Vijay Anand, Dr. Pretty Loushambam

Abstract


Each dental discipline may be challenged by somewhat different organisms.   Infectious agents in the blood and saliva of patients may include a diverse range of organisms. Dental impressions serve as a source of infectious microorganisms to dental personnel who handle the impressions or casts made from them. Many pathogenic microorganisms as well as opportunistic pathogens can be transmitted by impressions. The latter pathogens may cause opportunistic infections especially in immune compromised individuals.Immersion disinfection, sonication with disinfectants, microwave irradiation, ultra-violet light exposure,have all been suggested as methods to disinfect impressions.
