Clove’s modern clinics offer the very latest advantages in dental technology and equipment. Clove doctors are continually trained in the use of our advanced technology and equipment, and in clinical best practices, to ensure that patients benefit from the advantages available today.
AEROSOL REDUCING & AIR PURIFYING EXTERNAL HIGH VACUUM APPARATUS
Dental machines run at a very high speed in the wet environment of the mouth. They can generate Aerosol which may carry germs. Special high technology equipment has been installed in the Clove Clinics to reduce the aerosols generated during the treatment and clean the air. This technology uses high suction strength, coupled with special filters like the high fibre Cotton filter, fibre-glass filter, HEPA (H13) filter and activated carbon filters. All this leads to clean air in the operatory and in the clinic.
Clove’s imported dental chairs prevent cross-contamination to ensure the patient’s well-being. They are equipped with retractable valves that prevent oral fluids from flowing back into the chair tubing. Most dental chairs allow the backflow of these fluids into the tubing. Though the tubing is sterilized after a treatment, it is far more effective to prevent oral fluids from passing into the tubing in the first place.
Clove imports world-class rotary tools from Germany and Japan, which are used for drilling. They enable doctors to drill with greater precision, so the plaque and bacteria present at the site can be thoroughly removed. This allows fillings to properly attach to the cavity wall. As a result, fillings last longer.
Clove clinics use the latest x-ray technology to diagnose oral health problems in a painless, non-invasive way. Though exposure to radiation can pose health risks, Clove uses sophisticated, portable x-ray equipment that limits this exposure to negligible levels. Clove clinics also use lead aprons and lead thyroid collars to protect doctors and patients from radiation. Finally, Clove clinics adhere to the ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) principle, as defined by the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations 10 CFR 20.1003. The principle directs medical establishments to identify and use ways to minimize the exposure of medical personnel, patients and clinical staff to radiation.
WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM
Clove clinics rely on reverse osmosis (RO) filtration systems to ensure the safest possible water supply.
Autoclaves sterilize dental tools by subjecting them to high pressure, saturated steam. Clove’s autoclaves are imported from international manufacturers and Clove doctors are trained in and adhere to strict protocols for the sterilization of tools.
Dental consumables are the medicines, materials and small pieces of equipment used in dental procedures. Clove Dental clinics use consumables such as bonding agents, cements, files and curing lights from leading suppliers like European Ivoclar Vivadent and U.S.-based 3M, Kerr and DENTSPLY.
