How Technological Advancements are Shaping the Future of Dentistry

Today, the disruptive innovation happening on the technology front is taking every industry by storm. The field of dentistry is no different.

The global dental industry is anticipated to witness strong growth in the coming years. One of the many reasons growth is occurring at such a rapid pace is because the fields of dental surgery and dental science are witnessing numerous technological advancements, especially in the area of implants and oral maxillofacial surgery.

But that’s not all. 

State-of-the-art technological advancements are also helping dental care providers make the shift to value-based care – one where patients are at the epicenter of all functions and their comfort is given priority. This can significantly ameliorate outcomes and contribute toward increasing your practice’s bottom line.

In this piece, we will be looking at a few ways in which modern technology is shaping the future of dentistry.

Your Guide to the Best Manufacturers For Dental Gloves

Imagine you’re about to take your first patient, and you’re fully booked for the day. However, you reach for a pair of dental gloves to find them inadequate.

You can order dental gloves from a variety of manufacturers. Unfortunately, not all follow the same processes, which can affect the quality.

But why does glove quality matter?

Importance of Proper Dental Gloves

When working with patients, proper gloves are vital for dentists and hygienists. Gloves protect your hands as you work.

They also prevent the spread of germs between you and your patients. And glove replacement between patients is non-negotiable. 

Glove quality is essential. The right dental gloves must be protective and sterile.

Keep in mind that some dental gloves don’t live up to the same standards as others.

Of course, you’ll also need to consider the proper fit based on your hand size. The same is true for other dentists and hygienists in your office.

When choosing between manufacturers for dental gloves, consider the type of gloves your team requires.

Types of Dental Gloves

The first thing to consider when choosing dental gloves is the material. Some manufacturers produce nitrile gloves.

Nitrile gloves are good for a variety of situations. You can use incidental contact nitrile gloves when performing a dental exam.

Incidental contact gloves are disposable, so you can use a new pair with a new patient or if a pair rips or tears.

There are also extended contact nitrile gloves. They’re thicker, and you can reuse them, but cleaning is necessary between uses.

Nitrile gloves, incidental or extended contact, are a great alternative to latex. However, if you don’t have to worry about an allergy, latex gloves can be a good option, too.

Latex gloves work well with water and other bodily fluids. They’re for incidental contact, so you should switch them out after each use.

Best Manufacturers for Dental Gloves

Once you know what to look for in dental gloves, it’s time to consider manufacturers. Of course, there are many places where you can find gloves.

However, you should look for the best quality and manufacturing possible. That means using gloves that won’t tear or rip easily. If you or your patients have a latex allergy, you should also avoid gloves of that material.

You also want to choose dental gloves from a company that offers different sizes and types – such as surgical gloves and examination gloves.

Net32 House Brand

The House Brand at Net32 includes a variety of dental gloves. Gloves come in various sizes, including small, medium and large.

Net32’s House Brand offers blue, non-sterile nitrile exam gloves. You can use them for dental exams or other daily activities.

While the gloves are non-sterile, they’re good quality and they’re popular. You can use them for a variety of dental exams. However, avoid using them on patients with latex allergies.

Aurelia also offers nitrile gloves in a few colors and sizes. The nitrile gloves come with more in a box, but the number depends on the size and color.
